What should a college personal statement include?

You’ll submit information about your classes and grades, standardized test scores, and various other accomplishments and honors. On much of the application, your accomplishments must speak for themselves. The personal statement is different though, and it’s your chance to let your voice be heard.

Can I talk about my hobbies in my personal statement?

Yes! But there are a few things to watch out for. Admissions tutors encourage applicants to produce a personal statement which distinguishes them from others. Talking about your interests and hobbies, in a way that supports the rest of your application, can help serve this purpose.

What can I write about my hobbies?

Talking about hobbies in more detail “I like arts and crafts. I’m a creative / practical person, and like doing things with my hands.” “I’m an outgoing person, and like socialising / hanging out with friends.” “I enjoy being physically active, and spend a lot of time playing sports and team games.”

Is it okay not to have a hobby?

Yeah very NORMAL. You need not feel sad at all. Hobbies are not compulsory in life but they give happiness when you do them. Some find happiness in little things too.
