I'm a mature student who's currently on an access course, and I'm at the point where I need to write a personal statement for uni applications. I have tried numerous times to start it, I've made multiple mind maps, plans, tried to follow all of the advice online and from my college tutor. But I'm really struggling to even know where to start.
When I get asked why I want to study the course, I don't have this amazing reason. I just do. I don't have any achievements, hobbies or qualifications to talk about and I did really rubbish at school, I feel really stuck and I'm just about ready to call it a day on the uni plan.
Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do here? I've given up my life for this and I'm so frustrated and upset at myself that I can't do it.
