1) Personal Narrative: For your first essay, you are to write a personal narrative. A narrative is a first-person account of an experience in your life. This will help your instructor get to know you better. Everyone has a story. What is your story? What is an event in your life that holds significance to you? Why is it significant? Why is it meaningful? In writing your narrative you should communicate to your reader the meaning and significance of your story.
Additional Guidance: This assignment has two goals: to describe a significant experience and to argue why the experience was significant.
You are free to choose any experience you think was significant for you, but make sure to provide details to the reader so that he or she can visualize the experience, and to argue why the experience was significant.
