4. How do I add some other achievements also in the essay without making it apparent Frist and foremost things is to decide and define - What is an achievement for you? They want to see why you call something an achievement. How you define an achievement also defines you as a person. Then, think very carefully which achievement you are going to use. The important part here is not only the magnitude of the achievement per se but also the impact it created on your life. Look for something which has had the biggest impact on your life.
