Any tips for starting an admissions essay/personal statement?

I'm in the process of applying to NC State University as a transfer back in my hometown of Raleigh NC. I'm currently attending school in FL, and recently changed my major from Structural Architecture to Landscape Design & Management (LDM). Although my current school's LDM program is pretty good, I wont be able to become a licensed Landscape Architect with a LDM degree and NC State has a great Landscape Architecture program. As I mentioned, I'm in the process of doing the application, but unfortunately I'm stuck on the starting personal statement. Although this portion is optional, it just seems like a good idea to write one anyway. They also ask: "Discuss any obstacles and/or hardships you have encountered and how you dealt with them." "Describe the reasons you have chosen to enter the major that you selected previously in this application." and "What is your view of diversity and its importance in education?" And like the personal statement, I'm stuck on starting. Any tips?
