    What exactly are we supposed to write in the essay?

    They call it “Tell Your Story” as though it is a college admission’s essay. It could be one anecdote or moment that changed your life or how it made you be the person you are today. Perhaps it motivated to choose to explore the arts in your future, to study a certain subject, or to be kind to animals. (I’m making this up for an example here.)

    Does that help? Sorry if I’m not being clear. You might visit their site to help you more.
