A History of Me Essay Instructions:
You are young, your life doesn't necessarily have enough craziness to justify a full on Biography just yet, but why let that stop you?
The first essay we will be writing is a 5-7 paragraph personal
biography. Written in APA format this 3rd person account of what your life looked like from to beginning to end, remember this is not an autobiography where you look back at your own life. To get started I would review THIS 10 paragraph biographical essay of George Washington.
