Princeton Supplement Essay: Elaborate On One of Your Extracurricular Activities or Work Experiences


Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences that was particularly meaningful to you. (About 150 words)

I started the Current Events Club because my group of friends like to discuss current news and local, national, and international politics. Our discussions would usually become very intense and attract a diverse crowd of participants. After two years of these discussions, we noticed that people would express their interest in joining the discussion, but would not have enough knowledge on a topic to formulate and express their view. Once we realized this, a friend and I decided that it would be a great idea to turn our discussions into a club where we could inform people about current events that they are unfamiliar with. This club has successfully given me a way to teach people about important topics, while also providing an open forum for learning and an exchange of ideas. Further, as I have an interest in teaching, the formation of this club has provided me an avenue to practice teaching and confirm it as a future career plan.
