As defined by MacMillan Dictionary, the “kernel of truth” is “the central or most important part of something.”
What’s your kernel of truth?
When you find it, it’s time to start writing your college application essay because that central piece of your personality will make your story compelling and meaningful.
In my brainstorming workshops I talk a lot about finding your kernel of truth and we spend time talking about your passions, your family, and your experiences in an effort to find a subject that truly interests you.
The goal is to find a topic that is so important to you that you WANT to write about it.
Writing your 650-word college essay shouldn’t be an onerous chore. It ought to be a story that pours out of you and reflects the essence of whom you are.
I’ll be offering a brainstorming workshop in June and will send out an announcement shortly.
