Personal Statement: My favorite word

BY MAYANK MATHUR

I love the word “creative.” I love the crisp sound of the first syllable and how it seems to mellow down, almost wandering away into ambiguity by the time you finish saying it.

“I’ve been (longboarding) for four years and racing for two years. The most rewarding thing is when you get to the bottom of the hill, and, first of all, you’re not hurt. You’ve had a good run … The benefits absolutely outweigh the risks. Even while in bed after surgery from (injuries), I was watching a race on Livestream and couldn’t wait to get back on my board.”
