This personal statement needs to write itself...

One of the last things I'm doing for my applications to grad school is this stupid personal statement, which is optional but I feel I need to do since one part of my application is weak. I'm trying to incorporate parts of my culture and background and it is a little hard for me to come up with things to say. I think it's also hard to figure out what to leave out.

I really hate writing about myself. The Statement of Purpose was hard enough because I don't like boasting about myself. I am good at writing academic essays when I'm stuck because I usually skip to writing a different paragraph and then go back to the last paragraph where I was having problems later. But this is just a hot mess.

Any tips?
