Personal Statement Advice

Hello, I'm having trouble starting my personal statement essay. I am considering two topics. Which do you think is best?
1. Me finally beating my older brother in tennis after a few years and not having lost since then, even though he has every physical advantage. Would be a story about my tenacity/not giving up after setbacks. Would tie it to law in that having much determination translates to the legal profession = I would always fight for my clients. However, do you think that this narrative is too cliche?
2. Writing about how my time on my school's honor council convinced me to pursue a career in law. I could touch upon a big, complex case that I spearheaded and how I loved doing the investigations/making sure the student got what they deserved based on the evidence. However, big problem here is that I wouldn't be allowed to talk about case specifics...
