MIT Essay: Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it


We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you. Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it.

What I do for pure enjoyment is clowning. When I participated in my school talent show this past year, with a juggling act, the crowd erupted in laughter! People burst out in applause because my performance was so original. This was the beginning of my amateur clowning career because the talent show gave me the idea to join my local VFW clown unit. We clown at fairs where I hear kids go “WOW” whenever I put on a show. Then I visited a hospital on my own to perform, and the elderly patients loved watching me juggle. Seeing others enjoy themselves helps relieve all of my own worries.
