How do you make your personal statement more personal?

I've been told that my personal statement doesn't talk about me as an individual as much as it should. Like my personality and interests, but I thought that that would be reflected through the entire personal statement within the way it is written and what it is written about. Apparently not. So does anyone have any advice on how I would talk about who I am in my personal statement?

Talk about why you love your subject, and how it relates to what you do in your own time

Hi myye!

Hope you are doing well. What course are you applying for and do you have a list of universities that you are interested in applying to?

It's really important that you make your personal statement unique to you as this makes it more personal. As mentioned by the advice above, you could talk about why you love the subject, how it relates to you but also extracurricular activities that you undertake.

I am a final year Law student at City, university of London so if you have any further questions, then I am happy to help.
