    I need your advice. You see this year I'm applying for studies. And I wonder should I metion that for two years I studied in my country, and I decided to quit it, because I didn't like what I was studying it was design, cause It wasn't what I like to do...

    After these years I think I finally know what I want to do - is to study sports, because it always been huge part of my life and it's my passion...

    But also these years, which I spent studying I was member of student representation and there I was very active, don't want to sound cocky... You see I was one of the main organizators of the biggest night basketball tournaments in country, also organized more events, and I was responsible for sports events in my faculty. These all things I did as a member of student representation.

    I don't want to look in my personal statement like person who isn't responsible and quits what he starts, it's just that I didn't like what I was studying and decided to take actions. Could you give me some advices in this situation.

    Definitely include it!!!
    This shows your maturity and brave enough to listen to your heart instead of being complacent. Since you know why you quit designing and why you like sports go for it!!

    Everything you mention in your PS should be recent - in the last two years. Your time at uni will need to be in the education section tho. Focus on the future and your interest in this course rather than your last time at uni
