Ollege admission personal statement, acheivement

Attended one yr of community college 32 credits with a GPA of 2.68. I have a year off to go to chemical dependency treatment and sober living. Have been working full time for last 6 months and am ready to focus on my education again. I want to make a statement about what I have learned from that experience. Something like: unlike my cmunity college experience I now understand the importance of education…”. I want to be clear that i am now focused on it and have alot to offer school and the community.
