“Describe an experience from your past that greatly impacted your life. How did this occurrence help shape the person you
are today? What expectations do you have for your study abroad experience and in what way do you think this experience will affect your life?”
https://www.studiesabroad.com/destinations/europe/spain/madrid/spanish-language-hispanic-studies–electives – this is the ISA program for Madrid Spain
Use the passage below to help answer the question above, if you need to make up a story to get a better essay that’s ok.
For the question above the essay should not be no longer than 400 words.
Where can I begin? As of a young age my parents were determined to raise me in a cultural, spiritual and loving surrounding. I was born in the United States, however my parents decided it’s best to raise me and my brother in our home country (Ethiopia). When I came of age now I understand the impact of their choices on our foundation of character. Growing up my parents tried their best to take us to different places in Ethiopia and also abroad in Europe and Asia. I grew fond of learning other languages, cultures, and lifestyles; in time appreciating and exploring the world became a big part of me.
Besides the passion I have for learning and exploring other cultures, this opportunity of studying abroad can improve my academic and professional career by challenging me to go to a place I have never been before and develop my survival skills, it can help me develop my communication skills and push me to network with others out of my comfort zone while earning credits towards my degree. Since it will be my first time traveling by myself, I am looking forward to gaining high value skills such as intercultural communication, adaptability, and problem-solving skills from this experience. I believe that this program will help me learn how to multitask, overcoming fear of being by myself and adapting to my surroundings alongside achieving great academic results.

Part A (400 words minimum, 450 words maximum)

Consider the analysis offered by Stephen Batchelor in the chapter “Emptiness,” from his book Buddhism
Without Beliefs, alongside these other assigned selections from traditional Buddhist teachings and scriiptures:
(1) The Simile of the Chariot, (2) Change and Identity, and (3) the Introduction and translations of two
versions of the Heart Sutra, reprinted in the Buddhist journal Tricycle.

What are the most important ways in which the ideas and understandings presented in the traditional texts
listed above correspond to and offer support for the analysis Batchelor presents?

(Remember that you should not present your own value judgements about, or agree or disagree with, the
arguments and ideas presented in these assignments. Rather, you are simply being asked to identify and
explain how the key ideas are related to each other, given the evidence presented in the text itself.)

Part B (400 words minimum, 450 words maximum)

In his essay “That to Philosophize Is to Learn How to Die,” Michel de Montaigne offers an argument about
what he believes is the proper way for human beings to approach the prospect of their own deaths. It is an
argument that Montaigne clearly knows will be difficult for many if not most of us to accept.

What are the most important ways in which Montaigne tries to persuade us that we should accept his
approach to death? In preparing your answer, do not focus on what setting forth in detail what Montaigne’s
approach to death is (though you may state that very briefly in a short sentence or two). Instead, focus on
how Montaigne tries to convince his readers that what he is talking about is a way of living that will be good
for us.

(Remember that you should not present your own value judgements about, or agree or disagree with,
Montaigne’s views. Rather, you are simply being asked to identify and explain his argumentative strategies,
given the evidence presented in the text itself.)
