Often in life, we are faced with obstacles that must be overcome to grow both interpersonally and personally as individuals. This essay should reflect a situation where either you or a loved one has had to face adversity, whether it be through drug or alcohol addiction, financial difficulty, being bullied as a child, racial injustice, or living with a disabled family member to name a few. Although we are thrown these curveballs in life, the most important thing is how you overcome and grow from these hardships.
