Write a short narrative essay that focuses on what you learned from a specific situation or event from your past.
Remember that any essay
is essentially an argument. You are trying to convince an audience about
something. In this essay, share what you learned from a specific
situation or event in your life, using details to demonstrate to the
audience how and why this lesson was learned. Perhaps it is that hard
work pays off, or that life takes effort, or that you can overcome
life's struggles if you have love.
Whatever your topic, be sure
that you create an introduction that lets the reader know what the
focus of the paper is. Then, in one arguable sentence, present your
thesis statement. For example: Experiencing the loss of a parent helped
me realize that life is short and should be lived to the fullest. In
this example, your body paragraphs should then show specifically how the
death of a parent changed your views on life and how you live it.
Finally, be sure to include a conclusion paragraph that wraps up the
main points of your essay.
