Of all the writing, one ever knows 'Personal Statement' turns out to be an unusual or special kind of writing. This is required in many colleges or universities and is considered as important part of the application. It provides an opportunity for the students to express themselves freely and give them a chance to bring out their personality through the writing. This is the statement where one is able to present themselves to the university and also convince the academic officers of the university regarding their ability.
In conceptualizing a theme, you have to consider the main question, "What would you like to say with your essay?" For example, do you want the admissions committee to understand your choice of major and career in relation to your family background, or do you want to share your passion for your chosen field and your desire to achieve excellence in it? Whichever theme you come up with, this has to be unique to you as an applicant and should be related to your personal background, choice of major, and choice of career. The more unique a theme is, the more interesting the essay will be. In this sense, you can capitalize on personal facts you believe are noteworthy of exposition.
