    I'm applying to study Law at KCL, and I have a few days left to write the essay for a scholarship application

    (I haven't received an offer or rejection yet btw, I'm applying for the scholarship pre-emptively)

    The essay is 500 words, and I have to write about my proudest achievement, and a failure that taught me something. The thing is, I don't know what to write! The only thing I'm kinda proud of is that I'm writing a play, but it's for my EPQ, so they may not want that? Idk
    I can't really think of a profound challenge or failure either, I'm just a pretty boring person I guess? Other than being rejected from a summer school, but again, that's more academic than personal, so it seems less profound and meaningful. Any suggestions of the type of thing they're looking for? Thanks
