There are 2 big essays followed by one broken down into 3 parts. I've discussed my current job in the two big essays. For the first short essay of the one, I wrote about my grandfather as an entrepreneur. My second essay I discussed another work experience. I was wondering if I can discuss taking care of my mom who has cancer and how I've helped her and my family as my third essay (your most significant accomplishment) or if that's not a good idea. If not, any other suggestions? Can I talk about work?
If you have covered your work and professional accomplishments well in the other essays, then you can certainly cover the personal challenges and triumphs of taking care of your mom during her illness in an essay. This is one way to demonstrate your humanity and capacity to care for and about others. However, if you have not adequately covered your work or non-professional impacts in the other essays, you will need to juggle the topics (perhaps eliminating the story of your grandfather?) to leave room for these important subjects.
