I love seeing politicians on here because it makes me as a young person feel actually connected to politics.
How much of this kind of stuff do you do? Like, what (ish) percent of you campaigning is it?

I really love how you said “our son” instead of “my son.” It’s a small thing, but it shows and values how much partnership is involved in parenting

I want to use this prompt for my common app essay:
“The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?”
I want to write about how in sophomore year, my best friend attempted suicide, and I didn’t call 911. A year later when he told me he was planning on attempting again, I got him help.
I’m proud of my essay, but I’m worried this is too deep of a topic and turn off the reader of my application. I know it’s dependent on who reads my app, but is this a valid fear to have?
Thank you for doing this, it is very extremely helpful :)
