    I'm writing an essay and i have to start with something like
    "For the past 3 years i have developed ...."
    any suggestions? I'm going through writer's block and its killing me :/

    You've developed your educational skills which is shown in your grades?
    Play any instruments, sports, hobbys that are relevant
    Attend and clubs? Mention those if relevant
    Also if you have a part time job it shows commitment and maturity
    Show your ability to have a long term plan e.g. in 5 years time...

    Also, remember, it's always best not to rush things and a little procrastination actually brings out better ideas because you have more time to subconsciously process it, but still enough time to write it up
