    A common strategy is to write one of the life experiences that motivated you to pursue your chosen academic/research discipline. An alternative approach can write an experience during which you overcome a challenge, which in turn inspired you towards your chosen academic/research area. In either case, emphasize how the experiences motivated you towards your career decision rather than listing extensive details that will do nothing but bore the admissions committee.
