Well, you've certainly changed this topic around a few times since the first draft I read. This is fine but not necessarily compelling for me. I liked the part about climbing the hill and your grandmother's house (that was you, right?). Also, for only 650 words, it seems a bit odd that you used "my early life" 7 times

It's two pages, double-spaced TNR 12pt, 1" margins. Perfect for schools that want a 2-page PS. For schools that want a 2-3 page, I think I'd try to get at least half a paragraph onto the third page. Couple more sentences. (I didn't read it, so I'm purely going off length.)

Edited because I'm an idiot. :P
