When writing my admissions essay, should I include the fact that I am trans?

I don't know how much they need to know about me. I'm not transitioned yet, and I'm afraid if I say I'm a male and then show up female presenting they won't accept me or will kick me out.

Do college applications have to be tragic?

Don't get me wrong, I can write about many tragic things that have happened in my life, but that doesn't make up who I am.

How do you know a job is right for you ?

Ive had the same job for a couple years. I love the people I'm working with but I don't feel fulfilled in what I do. I like the job but I don't know if it's because of my perspective or if it's just not the right job for me.

I am a good student with good writing skills, but I cannot seem to win any scholarships. What are they looking for in a winning essay?

I think I am writing good answers to the essay questions on scholarships I think I could win, but I have not had much luck. I wonder if there is a winning formula. Something I need to be sure to include or a certain style? #scholarships #essay

Do you think it is too hard to double major in history and musical theater?

I really love acting and singing, but I figure I can always do that as a hobby without training, and I will need a degree to get a job in a history field.

I really enjoy learning about ancient and European history more, but I figure that if I am looking for a job in the US at a historic site or museum, I would need more of an American history background. I don't know what kind of jobs would be available to someone with a focus on ancient...
