Is this a good college essay topic?
I recently just finished my personal statement about how my first time in Thailand (not mission trip, a vacation), in a poverish area living in a stilt house, taught me to live life to the fullest and to just live in the moment. But after reading it I feel like it isn’t as strong.
But prior to that experience, I used to be really embarrassed about my culture and how I didn’t like to speak Thai in public and such but then I eventually wanted to learn more about my culture. Do you still think that it’s cliche to be embarrassed?

That you learned about your own culture and are proud of it now is good.
But I would tie the trip to academics , not about living in the moment.
