This is an essay for a general scholarship application provided by the school. I’m a decent student (3.6 GPA), which leaves me a bit stumped on how to write an essay about academic achievements. I haven’t devoted an extraordinary amount of time to overachieving in academia. My interest lies in music and most notably writing for film and media. I’d be happy to provide more details to personalize the essay after choosing someone.
