Essays about life changing events

I advise students to read plenty of examples of strong essays in advance of beginning any brainstorming or writing. There are a number of books on the market and websites to help. Then I like to choose a couple of those sample essays and have the student identify three things or traits that were revealed about the writer/applicant. For example, family is important as revealed by the catchy beginning that showed the writer/applicant having a deep discussion with an older sibling. Or the writer is profoundly interested in studying French and is willing to take on challenges outside her comfort zone as revealed by the reference to studying abroad in a full-immersion exchange program. Or the writer values community as revealed by the eloquent description of her role within the corps d’ ballet, and how she provides support to and draws on the strength of her fellow dancers. Then I ask, “what do you want to reveal about yourself that’s important to you?”

Rossana,
If you write conservatism-based pieces, the perfect place for you is http://
They are a brand new website that is less than 3 months old and they already have 250,000/day, and it’s growing rapidly. They don’t pay for the first 10 articles, but after that, they do. We are always looking for more like-minded writers to join us. Find us on facebook at Conservative Push Group and one of the editors/staff will direct you on how to get started. The site primarily supports Ted Cruz, but that’s only one facet.
