Summer Essays: A Moment of Betrayal

Her heart hammered against her rib cage as she slid to the ground.

By Naneen Karraker

Published:

Katarzyna Bialasiewicz

Editor’s Note: Summer essayists contemplate personal moments of disloyalty, sharing their stories that range from a failing body and objection to war to peer pressure and loss of faith.

An act of betrayal can cause hopelessness and despair. But people show amazing resilience and often overcome the temporary setbacks disloyalty leaves in its disastrous wake.

The East Bay Monthly asked East Bay writers to consider a moment of betrayal in the summer essay contest. The theme seemed to resonate well with the wordsmiths, and essayists responded by turning in moving prose about infidelity, loss, abusive relationships, inside jokes, bullying, and other topics.

The essays chosen to present in print address betrayal in wide-ranging ways, touching on the strains of a weakening body, standing up to the U.S. Marines, and making a gut decision that puts a group of friends at odds. They explore a loss of faith in a trusted adult and a careless act in wartime. They are poignant, dramatic, exciting, heartwarming, and humorous tales, and they are well-written.

Congratulations to the winning essayists, Naneen Karraker, Robert Menzimer, Stacy Appel, Patricia Young, Anna Rabkin, Flossie Lewis, and Bobbie Stein. Thanks to all the many Bay Area writers for submitting such wonderful prose—it was truly great reading. Look for our next essay contest in the winter.

This is the first of the seven winning essays:

 

My heart is pounding, a thundering fills my head, and I can’t catch my breath as I reach the top of the Philadelphia subway station stairs. This isn’t me. I’m healthy. At 66, I am strong and brave enough to do handstands several times a week. I travel a lot, too. These days I fly east several times a year for meetings. Today, I’m on my way to a two-day advisory board meeting at the Quaker Center.

Through the pouring rain, I see a smudge of lights. If I squint and concentrate really hard, they look enough like the drugstore I’m trying to find. I need an umbrella. It’s six long blocks to my meeting. As blurry as they are, the lights become a beacon, a goal, helping me move ahead instead of lying down right where I am.

"I’ve got to get an umbrella." I say it again and again as I fight against the growing weakness in my legs. I can barely put one foot ahead of the other, inching toward the half-dozen people waiting for the light to change.

The light changes. I step off the curb, dragging my new rolling carry-on with one hand and clutching in the other a bag of crisp red apples I’d picked yesterday at my cousin’s Hudson Valley farm. The drugstore lights are just ahead. But when I reach them, I can’t find a door. Just the cold, hard side of a city building interrupted by a ribbon of faintly lit windows. Above them, a Walgreens sign shines a bright red into the dark, autumn evening. I’m imagining a friendly space where I can sit and finally catch my breath. But now what?

I know I need to get out of the rain. I spot an opening in the side of the building, another subway exit, to my left. I push myself to take the dozen or so steps to reach it. Just inside, there’s a narrow landing, maybe 4 feet wide, before stairs leading down to the tracks. I park my suitcase against the wall just inside the opening and lean against it, fighting to suck in one long breath after another. A young man is perched on a ledge about 6 feet across the opening from me. He’s dressed casually, wearing earphones, swaying slightly to his music, eyes closed, waiting for the rain to let up. People rush in and out of the subway and along the sidewalk. My heart hammers against my ribs. My legs give way. I slide slowly down the wall, hoping my new suitcase can hold me. I remember something about how women can experience a heart attack without chest pains or shooting pains down the left arm. Fear spurs me to reach for my cellphone. I dial 911.

A woman finally answers. Somehow I find the words to tell her I think I’m having a heart attack. "Where are you?" she asks. "Near the Walgreens on Broad and Chestnut," I mumble, praying I’ve accurately named my location. Philadelphia is a new city for me.

"We’ll send an ambulance right away."

I can barely focus through the fog that is now settling across my eyes. The steady flow of people becomes a blur. No one stops to help as my legs give way and I curl slowly to the damp sidewalk, knees bent, my back against the suitcase. Still grasping for air, I begin to tremble, afraid that the ambulance will come too late to find me. Then desperate, I lean toward the young man perched on the ledge across from me, struggling to make my voice heard.

"Help me, I think I’m dying."

He looks up, hops off the ledge, and kneels beside me.

"Ma’am, I’m here. What’s going on?"

"I called 911, but I don’t hear any sirens."

"Don’t worry," he assures me. "I hear them. They’re coming."

I strain to hear and struggle against the weight that’s making me feel like stretching out on the wet pavement. To hell with the pedestrians! So what if they have to step around me!

He puts his arm around my shoulders, holding me close. Finally I can hear the sirens through the rain and traffic and pedestrian noise. Closer and closer. He then pulls away, gently propping me against my suitcase.

"They’re across the street," he announces. He jumps up, racing toward the blur of flashing lights. I crumble sideways, stretching out on the wet sidewalk.

Moments later he is beside me, carefully lifting me so I’m sitting again. "They’re here," he assures me. I can vaguely make out two EMTs, dragging their gurney, heading toward us. One of them guides me onto the gurney. He attaches an oxygen mask over my nose and mouth. As I focus on sucking in one breath after another, I can feel the young man moving around, making sure the EMTs have not only me, but also my suitcase and the bag of apples. Then he is gone.

I’m still here, still here and beginning to breathe more easily, even though my body is not the body I’ve trusted for so many years.

Over the past 46 years, Naneen Karraker honed her writing skills by passionately arguing for reducing overreliance on incarcerating people in the United States through letters to the editor, op-ed pieces, pamphlets, grant applications, and speeches. She and her late husband, a criminal defense attorney, raised two sons in Berkeley.

★Psychology: Essay on Psychology

Is Psychology a Science? Essay

1133 Words
5 Pages

The British Psychological Society states that ‘Psychology is the scientific study of people, the mind and behaviour’ (BPS). In this essay I will be discussing what is actually meant by this and whether psychology fits into both the traditional views of a science, as well as more contemporary perspectives. It is widely suggested that Psychology is a “coalition of specialities” meaning it is multi-disciplinary (Hewstone, Fincham and Foster 2005, page 4). I will therefore examine whether it could be considered wrong to think that all parts of the discipline should neatly fit into one view of a scientific approach. In order to be considered a science, Psychology must consequently adhere to using a scientific method. If this were, as usual,

Studies such as the afore mentioned Milgram study showed that what may appear to be the most expected outcome may, in truth, be very different. I would also go on to argue that in actuality all sciences are some adaptation of common sense (Oppenheimer, 1956), leaving Psychology in this way, no different to any of the others. Ben Goldacre even argues that particular forms of science, such as neuroscience, regularly offer empirically incorrect research in reputable journals, claiming statistically significant results without the appropriate statistical tests (Guardian). Furthermore, there are three main aspects which were customarily associated with a science: metaphysical, theoretical and methodological assumptions. Under metaphysical it is believed that to gain scientific status requires the certainty that the subject matter i.e. human thought/ behaviour, is similar to that of other accepted sciences. This could then be true for Psychology, as particularly since Darwin’s suggestion of a continuity between behaviours of humans and other species, behaviour has become more scrutinised. However, this must be assumed in respect of determinism, suggesting predictions could be made. ‘Heisenbergs uncertainty principle’ suggests that when relating evidence of indeterminism within the universe to human behaviour, it proves ambiguous, and with parts of the discipline believing strongly in free will it seems difficult to establish a common ground (Valentine E.R. page 2).

The 15 Best One-Year MBAs Online

There are many people who would like nothing more than to go back to school and further their education, but life, responsibilities, and work often get in the way of that dream. Most of the courses on this list were designed with those people in mind: Online courses that can be flexible and tailored to fit almost any schedule. All of these programs have admission requirements that vary from school to school. As you scroll down through the list, pay special attention to each program’s accreditation. Not all accreditations are equal; a program accredited through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) is preferable to one you’ve never heard of.

Except where noted, all of the M.B.A. programs on this list are accredited through the AACSB, an organization that sets the standards for business school accreditation, and has served as the academic regulator of university business programs since 1916. It’s an exclusive club: Fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide have earned AACSB accreditation. You’ll note that many of these schools are accredited by other organizations, as well as AACSB.

Methodology:

  • Time Until Degree (1/3): the number of months required for the quickest time until degree.
  • Number of Concentrations (1/3): the number of concentrations students may take, even at the fastest time until degree delivery speed.
  • Academic Prestige (1/3): the relative prestige of schools based on admittance rates, average class size, endowment, and other factors.

Presentation Skills Training Course – Online

Apparently in a survey to discover what we are most afraid of in our lives we voted Public Speaking as our number one fear.

Amazingly we are more scared of presenting and standing up in front of other people and talking than we are of dying, which we voted as our number two fear.

In this course we share the secret processes and techniques that are used by the very best communicators in our history.

Much more useful than just reading through stuff.

Room too small for the group’s needs on both weeks and whiteboard didn’t clear properly. This caused issues for a number of speakers during their presentations.

He became easily annoyed by pupils in his class and lashes out by throwing things and storming out. James became increasingly aggressive to his peers and defiant towards staff. He is unable to maintain friendships and feels that everyone in his class hates him. He is on report and receiving punishments almost every day.

Recent teacher feedback states, ‘always helpful and polite in the group and to myself’ and ‘is keen to learn and tries hard’. James still has some areas for development, such as organisation and communication but his progress is evident. His mentoring sessions have been reduced from once a week to fortnightly. He met 3 out of 4 targets from his action plan and is generally much happier.

She will continue to develop her interest in performing arts.

Attendance is still an issue although it is greatly improved. He is gaining confidence within the new academic setting and is improving his attainment. LMs will support Lewis on a medium to long-term basis as many of his issues revolve around the family and home. He will be supported and encouraged to take responsibility for himself and his education. Regular contact with his mentor has helped Lewis to remain focused and his improved attendance means that he is performing better in school which, in turn, is helping his confidence.

Tiresias is responsible for further developing the theme of blindness, by using his own physical blindness to reveal to Oedipus his mental blindness. Lastly, Tiresias is ultimately responsible for imposing dramatic irony because of his great knowledge of the truth of Oedipus. As a fortune teller, Tiresias is able to see the fate and destruction of Oedipus’ life. Tiresias uses his great ability to reveal to the reader the downfalls in Oedipus’ life that will soon occur because of his quest to know his fate. The character of Tiresias demonstrates the

Even though Oedipus has full use of his physical vision, he is completely blind of his and his fate. Tiresias uses his own blindness to make Oedipus aware of his own mental blindness towards the truths of his life. Tiresias reveals to Oedipus that it is Oedipus’ physical sight that deters him from seeing the truths of his past. The proceeding passage illustrates the theme of blindness as revealed by Tiresias to Oedipus. “ And since you have reproached me with my blindness, I say – you have your sight, and do not see what evils are about you, nor with whom, nor in what home you are dwelling.” (Sophocles, pg 15). This quotation clearly depicts the development of the theme of blindness, as Tiresias is tell Oedipus that even though he can see physically he is blinded by his quest to know the truth of his life. Tiresias tells Oedipus that he cannot see the torment that is a part of Oedipus’ life. Tiresias reveals to the reader that to see physically does not mean that you can see mentally, as Oedipus clearly displays towards his past and his fate.

Tiresias, even though completely blind physically, can see the “wretchedness” of Oedipus’ life. On the other hand, Oedipus, who has complete use of his sight, is totally blind to his

At the very core of tragedy lies an uncertainty over the cause of the tragic predicament. The leading candidate for an explanation of this cause often comes under the name of hamartia, a Greek word that translates into “a defect in character”, “an error” or “a mistake.” However, the most…

                                                                                                                                                                          In Sophocles’ play,” Oedipus the King” there are contradictory situations relating to the ability to see things literally compared to having vision symbolically.  This motif repeats again and again in this story and becomes one of its central themes.  When Oedipus begins his life, his parents are told by an oracle that he will ultimately kill his father and marry his mother.  In an effort to avert this fate, his father, Laius, orders that the child be killed but when his mother, Jocasta, brings him to a mountaintop and leaves him to die, he is rescued by a shepherd.  Both parents have actual vision, but they are unenlightened because they believe that they can thwart the will of the Gods and change fate through their actions; in reality, in Greek legends again and again mortals are unable to alter the course of their fates once they are decided upon by the Gods.  Laius and Jocasta are blind to the inevitability of the oracle’s prediction, an example of having the ability to see yet lacking the vision to accept the course of their futures.

                                                                                                                                                                          By contrast, Teiresias, the blind prophet who made the prediction, lacks the ability to actually see, i.e., vision, but he is able to envision the future more accurately than those with eyesight.  Without the use of his eyes, he is still able to “see” Oedipus’ past as well as his destiny.  In this story, the blind man is actually the seer while those who retain their sense of sight are the blind ones who either ignore or deny what is literally in front of them.  When Oedipus is told that he is fated to kill his father and marry his mother, he believes that Polybus and Merope, the couple who rescued and raised him, are the potential victims of this prophecy so he flees, believing that in doing so he is saving the life of his father and avoiding the sin of incest with his mother.  Like his parents, who thought they could alter the will of the Gods by getting rid of their child, Oedipus lacks the vision to understand that his fate will be his fate, despite his efforts to change the future.  In the story Oedipus the King, the contradiction between being capable of vision vs.  truly being able to see arises throughout.

                                                                                                                                                                          After leaving his adoptive parents, while blind to the fact that they are not his real parents, Oedipus encounters Laius on the road and after the two of them engage in conflict, he kills him, his biological father although he is blind to that fact.  Hence, the blind prophet had had the vision to see this chapter of Oedipus’ fate with clarity: indeed, Oedipus had killed his own father.  Oedipus’ continues on his journey and because he is able to solve the riddle of the Sphinx, he ends up becoming the King of Thebes, while still being oblivious to the drama that has played out with Laius in his narrative.  There, he marries his widowed mother, Jocasta, fulfilling the prophecy of the blind oracle who has once again demonstrated his ability to “see” the world with a vision that has been beyond the reach of Oedipus, Laius, and Jocasta.

                                                                                                                                                                          When the kingdom of Thebes begins to decline, he does turns once again to the blind prophet Teiresias for help and to learn what has happened to the kingdom that has caused such deterioration.  Once again, it is the blind man who is able to see that there has been a contaminating force which has caused the downfall of Thebes, and that polluting factor is actually King Oedipus.  He could no longer deny the horrendous truth, that he had murdered his real father and married his mother, and in desperation, he blinds himself by pointing out his eyes.  The repetitive theme of having vision but being unable to see is now combined with the fate of Oedipus, who is now blind but is completely aware of the truth of his life and its horror.

Understand that most students rely on multiple funding sources; financing options typically include personal resources, educational loans, external scholarships and sponsorships, and Wharton Fellowships. We encourage you to investigate all sources of funding, including government and private scholarships, prior to borrowing from any loan program. Below are some resources that may offer funding opportunities.

                                                                                                                                                                          We do not endorse any specific lender nor do we receive compensation from any lender, and we encourage you to compare the fees and terms of all student loan products to determine which are best suited to your individual needs. Information on loan programs and links to loan applications are available on the Student Financial Services website.

Direct Unsubsidized loans will accrue interest while you are in school.

                                                                                                                                                                          Federal Direct and Direct GRAD PLUS Loans offer fixed interest rates, low fees, favorable repayment benefits, ease of application, and electronic disbursement of funds directly to your student account.

                                                                                                                                                                          Both loan programs require the completion of the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

                                                                                                                                                                          Private Alternative Loans

                                                                                                                                                                          A number of private lenders and other financial institutions offer education loans for students. These loans are called private alternative loans.

                                                                                                                                                                          Private alternative loans are not subsidized, and generally have tiered and fixed interest rates and fees based on your credit score. Cosigners may be required. Unlike Federal Direct and Grad PLUS loans, private loans do not have an income-based cap on monthly repayments. Therefore, we encourage U.S. citizens and permanent residents to first consider the Federal Direct and Direct Grad PLUS loan programs when you need to borrow. You can review a comparison of Grad PLUS and private alternative loans on the Student Financial Services website.

                                                                                                                                                                          Loans for International Students

                                                                                                                                                                          If you are an International student who is neither a dual U.S. citizen nor a U.S. permanent resident, we encourage you to investigate all sources of funding within your home country, including government and private scholarships and loans.

                                                                                                                                                                          Wharton has a new partnership with Quorum Federal Credit Union that will provide a non-cosigned loan product for incoming international students. This loan program does not require a U.S. cosigner, and specific information on this program will be made available to admitted students. Some U.S. banks will also permit international students to borrow through them provided you have a creditworthy U.S. citizen cosigner.

                                                                                                                                                                          Note 1: If you are an international student planning to borrow through the International Loan Program with Quorum Federal Credit Union, you will be limited to borrowing up to 80% of the MBA Student Budget for the first and second year of the program.

                                                                                                                                                                          Tuition and living expenses for first-year students for the academic year of August 2017 – May 2018 is $109,450.

                                                                                                                                                                          Is funding available for my MBA?

                                                                                                                                                                          Yes. MBA students typically finance their educations through a combination of educational loans, fellowships, and scholarships. These are available through external sources or Wharton.

                                                                                                                                                                          How do I learn about my financing options?

                                                                                                                                                                          Information on financing options is available through the Wharton MBA Program website and through Student Financial Services .

                                                                                                                                                                          How are fellowships awarded?

                                                                                                                                                                          All admitted students are considered for fellowship support at the time of admission. There is no separate fellowship application. Wharton fellowships are merit based. Criteria for selection may include academic achievement, compelling leadership, exceptional professional development, and unique personal qualities. If you are selected for a fellowship, you will be notified within your admissions and financial aid letter.

                                                                                                                                                                          How will I be notified if I am chosen to receive a fellowship?

                                                                                                                                                                          If you are selected for a fellowship, you will be notified within your admission decision letter. You will also receive the financial aid Fellowship and Cost of Attendance Letters that detail the amount of the fellowship you have been awarded and loans you are eligible to borrow. This will be sent via email shortly after you receive your admission decision. If you are not chosen for a fellowship, the Cost of Attendance Letter will only reflect your loan eligibility for the upcoming year.

                                                                                                                                                                          Are there any other outside sources that I should consider?

                                                                                                                                                                          You should also consider any organizations to which you belong that might provide aid, such as: religious organizations, fraternal organizations, clubs, athletics, veteran groups, ethnic groups, unions, employers, Rotary clubs, and charitable foundations.

                                                                                                                                                                          Are grants or fellowships taxable?

                                                                                                                                                                          The Tax Reform Act of 1986 states that grant assistance is taxable income to the extent that it exceeds tuition, required education fees, and course-related expenses. Course-related expenses are those for books, supplies, and equipment required for your courses. For non-resident aliens, the University is required to withhold federal income tax on grants received in excess of the expenses described above.

                                                                                                                                                                          What do I need to know about educational loans?

                                                                                                                                                                          The University of Pennsylvania offers information on several educational financing programs to assist students in meeting their educational expenses. These programs include Federal Direct Loans, Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loans, and alternative private loan programs. Please visit the Student Financial Service (SFS) website for more information.

                                                                                                                                                                          Are credit cards accepted for my tuition payments?

                                                                                                                                                                          The University of Pennsylvania allows online payment of tuition through an American Express card. There is a 2% convenience fee for students who choose this option. The fee is reflected in your American Express billing statement. Please visit the Student Financial Services (SFS) website for more information.

                                                                                                                                                                          The Global Immersion Program (GIP) and Global Modular Courses (GMC) are not included in Whartons student budget. Will the University provide funding to cover these expenses?

                                                                                                                                                                          The director of the Global Immersion Program submits an official Participants List to Wharton’s Financial Aid Office. The student budget may be increased to make students eligible for additional loans to cover the cost of these programs.

Time commitment and remuneration vary with the position. Qualified students should contact the department(s) of their choice directly. You are not limited to the Wharton School in your search for an assistantship. Your skills and expertise may be attractive to other schools within the University.

                                                                                                                                                                          It seems like a simple choice: if you can complete an Executive MBA program in 12 months, why follow a course of study that takes 22 months?

                                                                                                                                                                          There are the obvious considerations: more time, more money—both in the form of tuition and time spent away from your desk at your actual, day job. But the considerations are, in fact, a bit less clear when weighed.

                                                                                                                                                                          Top Tier

                                                                                                                                                                          First and foremost, if you’re looking to crack the top-tier business schools for your Executive MBA program, note that none of them offer anything less than a 19-month long course of study in a traditional nights and weekends format. The fact that the top schools by-and-large do not support a shorter course of study hints that a speedy EMBA might very well not be the shortest path to longer term success.

                                                                                                                                                                          Chicago’s Booth school’s Executive MBA program clocks in at 21 months. Wharton’s program can be competed in 24 months and includes the same number of class hours (700+) as a full time MBA. Kellogg gives students the option of studying in monthly or bi-monthly course intervals in either Evanston or Miami—either way, it’ll be two years to finish your Executive MBA. Columbia’s weekend Executive MBA program also runs 24 months.

                                                                                                                                                                          The Fuqua School at Duke gives EMBA applicants some options for program length. If you participate in the Global Executive MBA—which includes both online learning and international travel—you can earn your degree in a mere 15 months. But it’ll cost you: the program runs upwards of $166,000—so shorter is not necessarily cheaper . The school’s more traditionally structured weekend EMBA program clocks in at 19 months in duration but costs substantially less at $122,500.

                                                                                                                                                                          Perhaps the top-ranked and shortest Executive MBA program is that of the MIT Sloan Fellows. However, this is not an option for executives trying to balance a shorter program with their day job—it’s a full-time, 12-month program that’s intended for “executives who want an opportunity to step away from their working lives and immerse themselves in an intense, transformative experience,” according to the MIT website. For those who cannot take a year off from their current positions, MIT offers a more traditionally-structured EMBA in 20-months.

                                                                                                                                                                          If time frame is a non-negotiable factor for selecting an Executive MBA program, note well that you may have to trade off some brand recognition given that the top programs will not offer such a compressed degree.

                                                                                                                                                                          “There’s a prestige transference,” says Gayle Rigione, Director of Strategic Development for IvyExec. “Would you rather drive a Maserati or a Fiat? Most people will want the Maserati. But you can drive the Fiat. It’ll get you to your destination but it won’t necessarily have people racing to open a door for you.” 

                                                                                                                                                                          If you don’t feel that having access to the first class education, alumni connections and brand name recognition of a top-ranked school are as important as completing your program expediently, there are several schools that will cater to your need for speed.

                                                                                                                                                                          The Executive MBA program at Kansas City’s Benedictine College was one of the first to create a one-year trajectory for students on the fast track. The University of Toledo’s business school also has a 12-month track that meets on campus for only one weekend a month and even includes an international trip despite its compressed time frame.

                                                                                                                                                                          Harvard Business School has a different tactic—one that bestows prestige if you’re in a hurry and can get accepted into the program. The school calls the Program for Leadership Development (PLD) an alternative to the Executive MBA or a “rapid-fire MBA”. Each program has a specific focus—ranging from topics in health care management to leading and transforming family businesses in China—and range in length from a few weeks to seven months.

                                                                                                                                                                          “Unlike an eMBA, PLD is tailored to your unique needs and leadership challenges,” the program’s website says. “One-on-one coaching, living groups, personal strategy projects, practical application, and a faculty composed of full-time HBS professors are hallmarks of this intensive program.”

                                                                                                                                                                          Of course, you’ll walk away from the program with the Harvard name attached to your resume—although you will not receive an EMBA degree. Then again, you’ll also have access to one of the world’s most respected alumni networks which might prove to be more valuable than any degree.

The introduction, the three body paragraphs, and the conclusion.

                                                                                                                                                                          What reaallyyyyy helps in writing an essay and I have found highly useful over years of writing is starting with an outline, which looks like this…

                                                                                                                                                                          And now we get to the good stuff – writing the actual essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          In the introduction, tell your reader what you’re going to be talking about. Make sure to start off hooking the reader’s attention – I won’t tell you what to write because this is your own personal essay here! 🙂

                                                                                                                                                                          In the first body paragraph, start with the basics about yourself. Maybe talk about what you look like, where you live, and how old you are.

                                                                                                                                                                          In the second paragraph, go a little deeper. Maybe you can talk about your hobbies and interests and what extracurricular activities you’re currently taking.

                                                                                                                                                                          In the third, go even deeper – the reader feels they know you well now, so perhaps share your hopes and dreams for the future, such as what you want to be, where you want to live, etc.

                                                                                                                                                                          Finally, in the conclusion, give a quick summary of what you just said – not so descriptive that it feels repetitive, but a nice wrap-up of your paper. End with a strong, final sentence.

                                                                                                                                                                          After you’re done, EDIT!!! I cannot stress how important this is. Read your essay a couple times over, smoothing out sentences and catching typos. Make sure your essay is 12 pt. Times New Roman with 1″ margins – this is the typical format for an essay and teachers will like to see this. Also, maybe add in MLA format – you know, your name, teacher’s name, class name, date…

                                                                                                                                                                          Note that this is only the basics, and you can expand on what I said. Since this is a personal essay, make it personal! The body paragraphs could really be about anything. This is just a general idea of what to do.

                                                                                                                                                                          Best of luck, and hope this helps! 🙂

Students are often guilty of assuming they know themselves or that such an essay should never be given to college students. However, some come to learn, albeit the hard way, the importance of writing such an essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          Essays about oneself are indeed important and are indeed applicable in real life. For example, a student who is applying for a scholarship can be asked to describe themselves and explain why they should be given a chance. Other instances include when one is applying for college as well as when applying for a job. The main point here is, writing an assignment about yourself is just as important as writing a persuasive or an argumentative essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          How to Write Body Paragraphs for an Essay about Myself

                                                                                                                                                                          After the introduction, the next part involves supporting your angle or the aspect of your life you decided to focus on. In all essay writing exercises, this part is always crucial and often determines whether after capturing the attention of your audience, the writer will be able to maintain their attention. It is, therefore, essential for writers to ensure they are detailed and precisely stick to their thesis or focus. Therefore, when asked to write an essay, especially a personal essay, it is important for the writer to focus on a particular aspect which will guide or dictate the flow of the entire essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          Here are tips on how to write body paragraphs for an essay about myself:

                                                                                                                                                                          • Make use of topic sentences. Each paragraph should start with an argument that seeks to support the thesis statement.
                                                                                                                                                                          • Make your body paragraphs detailed. While describing yourself, make sure you are detailed and never leave the reader guessing.
                                                                                                                                                                          • Make use of examples. If, for example, you decided to focus on some of your high school swimming competitions, it is important to give specific examples and take your readership through one scene or competition. These help your essay and makes it possible for the audience to identify with your personal struggles or achievements.

                                                                                                                                                                          Jessica Larson

A run-in with the law or a battle with a serious mental illness is generally not the kinds of things you want to talk about in your essay. Always try to use negative characteristics or events to highlight your good points. For example, if one of your parents abandoned your family and you had to become a caretaker to your younger siblings, you can talk about how that experience made you more mature, responsible, and compassionate. But focus more on the outcome than the bad experience. The more skilled you are as a writer, the better youll do at turning negatives into positives. Don’t forget to proofread your essay.

First of all, you should try to focus on your personal life experience. People would like to learn about the things you have gone through instead of some imaginative things.

                                                                                                                                                                          Even though the essay about you should be focused on your name and deeds, do not start writing with the trivial phrases introducing yourself. It is still better to put an intriguing question which requires an answer in the end or begin with an interesting fact/quote/joke. It’s really helps to get your readers easily hooked to your essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          Dont type the words you dont know – your Word will most probably fix all your grammar mistakes, but you need to know what every word means when you use it in the essay about yourself. Choose synonyms to make your text richer, but replace difficult terms with simpler words.

                                                                                                                                                                          When you compose an essay about your life, you dont have to sound trivial. Use statistics and interesting facts to begin your paper.

                                                                                                                                                                          The last thing you can do is to check your paper if the spelling is correct, your grammar and punctuation errors.

                                                                                                                                                                          If you’re writing a personal essay for a college application, then Jessica’s answer would be relevant, as you want to shy away from heavier topics and make sure to stay positive.

                                                                                                                                                                          However, if you have the ability to discuss more serious hardships in a humorous, self-deprecating, positive way, don’t discount that approach.

                                                                                                                                                                          Choose to begin writing about a topic that has essentially shaped you. What has happened in your life that made you who you are today? What is a memory that stands out in your mind, that you could describe down to the weather and what you were wearing that day?

                                                                                                                                                                          When approaching this, keep in mind that good nonfiction uses the same techniques that fiction does. Don’t be afraid to use vivid descriptions, dialogue, and pay attention to your use of POV and tense. Approach this like you would a story. Although you should have a clear beginning and ending, this is not a standard 5 paragraph essay— that will get you nowhere. This is an opportunity to showcase your writing skill as well as your personality.

J. M. MacLellan has the main technical points. A personal essay for creative writing, or your own benefit, has more latitude than a personal essay for a college entrance or scholarship. For a creative writing class you can get as personal as you are comfortable with being.

                                                                                                                                                                          However, in either case you want a focal point for your essay. A purpose. You need to decide what that is. For now, call it a theme. Think of an event that changed you, that affected where you are now. It could be chance, it could be hard work, it could be something dark you rose above to get where you are. You are going to tell a narrative of how that happened and what it means.

                                                                                                                                                                          Picturing the Personal Essay: A Visual Guide

                                                                                                                                                                          There are some visual guides there for different types of reflections. I tend toward a narrative with a lift. This is your stereotypical novel narrative in micro. You want to build information, tension, importance, seriousness, etc until the reveal. At the reveal, you are at the apex of the narrative, you put everything out there that needs to be known (and nothing else – if it’s fluff, don’t use it).

                                                                                                                                                                          I have written one in picture mode, a reflection inward. There are these and more at that link. They don’t tell you what to write, just how to picture the narrative following inside your essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          Always know where you start and where you are going. Know your opening and ending before you start. You have to know where you are going so you can go directly there, otherwise you can wander aimlessly.

                                                                                                                                                                          What Is the College Essay Introduction For?

                                                                                                                                                                          Before we talk about how to start a college essay, let’s discuss the role of the introduction. Just as your college essay is your chance to introduce yourself to the admissions office of your target college, your essay’s beginning is your chance to introduce your writing.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Wait, Back Up—Why Do Colleges Want Personal Statements?

                                                                                                                                                                          In general, college essays make it easier to get to know the parts of you not in your transcript —these include your personality, outlook on life, passions, and experiences.

                                                                                                                                                                          You’re not writing for yourself but for a very specific kind of reader. Picture it: your audience is an admissions officer who has read thousands and thousands of essays. This person is disposed to be friendly and curious, but if she hasn’t already seen it all she’s probably seen a good portion of it.

                                                                                                                                                                          Your essay’s job is to entertain and impress this person, and to make you memorable so you don’t merely blend into the sea of other personal statements. Like all attempts at charm, you must be slightly bold and out of the ordinary—but you must also stay away from crossing the line into offensiveness or bad taste. 

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          What Role Does the Introduction Play in a College Essay?

                                                                                                                                                                          The personal statement introduction is basically the wriggly worm that baits the hook to catch your reader. It’s vital to grab attention from the get-go—the more awake and eager your audience is, the more likely it is that what you say will really land.

                                                                                                                                                                          How do you go about crafting an introduction that successfully hooks your reader? Let’s talk about how to structure the beginning of your college essay.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Teenagers hard at work on their college applications.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          How to Structure a Personal Statement Introduction

                                                                                                                                                                          To see how the introduction fits into an essay, let’s look at the big structural picture first and then zoom in.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          College Essay Structure Overview

                                                                                                                                                                          Even though they’re called essays, personal statements are really more like a mix of a short story and a philosophy or psychology class that’s all about you.

                                                                                                                                                                          Usually, how this translates is that you start with a really good (and very short) story about something arresting, unusual, or important that happened to you. This is not to say that the story has to be about something important or unusual in the grand scheme of things—it just has to be  a moment that stands out to you as defining in some way, or an explanation of why you are the way you are . You then pivot to an explanation of why this story is an accurate illustration of one of your core qualities, values, or beliefs.

                                                                                                                                                                          The story typically comes in the first half of the essay, and the insightful explanation comes second —but, of course, all rules were made to be broken, and some great essays flip this more traditional order.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          College Essay Introduction Components

                                                                                                                                                                          Now, let’s zero in on the first part of the college essay. What are the ingredients of a great personal statement introduction? I’ll list them here and then dissect them one by one in the next section:

                                                                                                                                                                          • A killer first sentence: This hook grabs your readers’ attention and whets their appetite for your story.
                                                                                                                                                                          • A vivid, detailed story that illustrates your eventual insight: To make up for how short your story will be, you must insert effective sensory information to immerse the reader.
                                                                                                                                                                          • An insightful pivot toward the greater point you’re making in your essay: This vital piece of the essay connects the short story part to the part where you explain what the experience has taught you about yourself, how you’ve matured, and how it has ultimately shaped you as a person.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          You’ve got your reader’s attention when you see its furry ears extended … No, wait. Squirrel. You’ve got your squirrel’s attention.

                                                                                                                                                                          • The point you want that story to make
                                                                                                                                                                          • The trait/maturity level/background about you that your essay will reveal

                                                                                                                                                                          So my suggestion is to work in reverse order! Writing your essay will be much easier if you can figure out the entirety of it first and then go back and work out exactly how it should start.

                                                                                                                                                                          This means that before you can craft your ideal first sentence, the way the short story experience of your life will play out on the page, and the perfect pivoting moment that transitions from your story to your insight, you must work out a general idea about which life event you will share and what you expect that life event to demonstrate to the reader about you and the kind of person you are.

                                                                                                                                                                          If you’re having trouble coming up with a topic, check out our guide on  brainstorming college essay ideas .

                                                                                                                                                                          In a 500-word essay, this section will take up about the first half of the essay and will mostly consist of a brief story that illuminates a key experience, an important character trait, a moment of transition or transformation, or a step toward maturity.

                                                                                                                                                                          Once you’ve figured out your topic and zeroed in on the experience you want to highlight in the beginning of your essay, here are 2 great approaches to making it into a story:

                                                                                                                                                                          • Talking it out, storyteller style (while recording yourself): Imagine that you’re sitting with a group of people at a campfire, or that you’re stuck on a long flight sitting next to someone you want to befriend. Now tell that story. What does someone who doesn’t know you need to know in order for the story to make sense? What details do you need to provide to put them in the story with you? What background information do they need in order to understand the stakes or importance of the story?
                                                                                                                                                                          • Record yourself telling your story to friends and then chatting about it: What do they need clarified? What questions do they have? Which parts of your story didn’t make sense or follow logically for them? Do they want to know more, or less? Is part of your story interesting to them but not interesting to you? Is a piece of your story secretly boring, even though you think it’s interesting?

                                                                                                                                                                          Later, as you listen to the recorded story to try to get a sense of how to write it, you can also get a sense of the tone with which you want to tell your story. Are you being funny as you talk? Sad? Trying to shock, surprise, or astound your audience? The way you most naturally tell your story is the way you should write it.

                                                                                                                                                                          After you’ve done this storyteller exercise, write down the salient points of what you learned. What is the story your essay will tell? What is the point about your life, point of view, or personality it will make? What tone will you tell it with? Sketch out a detailed outline so that you can start filling in the pieces as we work through how to write the introductory sections.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Baron Munchausen didn’t know whether to tell his story sad that his horse had been cut in half, or delighted by knowing what would happen if half a horse drank from a fountain.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          How to Write the First Sentence of Your College Essay

                                                                                                                                                                          In general, your essay’s first sentence should be either a mini-cliffhanger that sets up a situation the reader would like to see resolved, or really lush scene-setting that situates your audience in a place and time they can readily visualize. The former builds expectations and evokes curiosity, and the latter stimulates the imagination and creates a connection with the author. In both cases, you hit your goal of greater reader engagement.

                                                                                                                                                                          Now, I’m going to show you how these principles work for all types of first sentences, whether in college essays or in famous works of fiction.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 1: Line of Quoted Direct Speech

                                                                                                                                                                          “Mum, I’m gay.” ( Ahmad Ashraf ’17 for Connecticut College )

                                                                                                                                                                          The experience of coming out is raw and emotional, and the issue of LGBTQ rights is an important facet of modern life. This three-word sentence immediately sums up an enormous background of the personal and political.

                                                                                                                                                                          “You can handle it, Matt,” said Mr. Wolf, my fourth-grade band teacher, as he lifted the heavy tuba and put it into my arms. ( Matt Coppo ’07 for Hamilton College )

                                                                                                                                                                          This sentence conjures up a funny image—we can immediately picture the larger adult standing next to a little kid holding a giant tuba. It also does a little play on words: “handle it” can refer to both the literal tuba Matt is being asked to hold and the figurative stress of playing the instrument.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 2: Punchy Short Sentence With One Grabby Detail

                                                                                                                                                                          I live alone—I always have since elementary school. ( Kevin Zevallos ’16 for Connecticut College )

                                                                                                                                                                          This opener definitely makes us want to know more. Why was he alone? Where were the protective grown-ups who surround most kids? How on earth could a little kid of 8-10 years old survive on his own?

                                                                                                                                                                          I have old hands. ( First line from a student in Stanford’s class of 2012 )

                                                                                                                                                                          There’s nothing but questions here. What are “old” hands? Are they old-looking? Arthritic? How has having these hands affected the author?

                                                                                                                                                                          There was no possibility of taking a walk that day. (Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre)

                                                                                                                                                                          There’s immediately a feeling of disappointment and the stifled desire for action here. Who wanted to go for a walk? And why was this person being prevented from going?

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 3: Lyrical, Adjective-Rich Description of a Setting

                                                                                                                                                                          We met for lunch at El Burrito Mexicano, a tiny Mexican lunch counter under the Red Line “El” tracks. ( Ted Mullin ’06 for Carleton College )

                                                                                                                                                                          Look at how much specificity this sentence packs in less than 20 words. Each noun and adjective is chosen for its ability to convey yet another detail. “Tiny” instead of “small” gives readers a sense of being uncomfortably close to other people and sitting at tables that don’t quite have enough room for the plates. “Counter” instead of “restaurant” lets us immediately picture this work surface, the server standing behind it, and the general atmosphere. “Under the tracks” is a location deeply associated with being run down, borderline seedy, and maybe even dangerous.

                                                                                                                                                                          Maybe it’s because I live in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, where Brett Favre draws more of a crowd on Sunday than any religious service, cheese is a staple food, it’s sub-zero during global warming, current “fashions” come three years after they’ve hit it big with the rest of the world, and where all children by the age of ten can use a 12-gauge like it’s their job. ( Riley Smith ’12 for Hamilton College )

                                                                                                                                                                          This sentence manages to hit every stereotype about Wisconsin held by outsiders—football, cheese, polar winters, backwardness, and guns—and this piling on gives us a good sense of place while also creating enough hyperbole to be funny. At the same time, the sentence raises the tantalizing question: maybe what is because of Wisconsin?

                                                                                                                                                                          High, high above the North Pole, on the first day of 1969, two professors of English Literature approached each other at a combined velocity of 1200 miles per hour. (David Lodge, Changing Places)

                                                                                                                                                                          This sentence is structured in the highly specific style of a math problem, which makes it funny. However, at the heart of this sentence lies a mystery that grabs the reader’s interest: why on earth would these two people be doing this?

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 4: Counterintuitive Statement 

                                                                                                                                                                          To avoid falling into generalities with this one, make sure you’re really creating an argument or debate with your counterintuitive sentence. If no one would argue with what you’ve said, then you aren’t making an argument. (“The world is a wonderful place” and “Life is worth living” don’t make the cut.)

                                                                                                                                                                          If string theory is really true, then the entire world is made up of strings, and I cannot tie a single one. ( Joanna ’18 for Johns Hopkins University )

                                                                                                                                                                          There’s a great switch here from the sub-microscopic strings that make up string theory to the actual physical strings you can tie in real life. This sentence hints that the rest of the essay will continue playing with linked, albeit not typically connected, concepts.

                                                                                                                                                                          All children, except one, grow up. (J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan)

                                                                                                                                                                          In just six words, this sentence upends everything we think we know about what happens to human beings.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 5: The End—Making the Rest of the Essay a Flashback

                                                                                                                                                                          I’ve recently come to the realization that community service just isn’t for me. ( Kyla ’19 for Johns Hopkins University )

                                                                                                                                                                          This seems pretty bold—aren’t we supposed to be super into community service? Is this person about to declare herself to be totally selfish and uncaring about the less fortunate? We want to know the story that would lead someone to this kind of conclusion.

                                                                                                                                                                          Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. (Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude)

                                                                                                                                                                          So many amazing details here. Why is the Colonel being executed? What does “discovering” ice entail? How does he go from ice-discoverer to military commander of some sort to someone condemned to capital punishment?

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 6: Direct Question to the Reader

                                                                                                                                                                          To work well, your question should be especially specific, come out of left field, or pose a surprising hypothetical.

                                                                                                                                                                          How does an agnostic Jew living in the Diaspora connect to Israel? ( Essay #3 from Carleton College’s sample essays )

                                                                                                                                                                          This is a thorny opening, raising questions about the difference between being an ethnic Jew and practicing the religion of Judaism, and the obligations of Jews who live outside of Israel to those who live in Israel and vice versa. There’s a lot of meat to this question, setting up a philosophically interesting, politically important, and personally meaningful essay.

                                                                                                                                                                          While traveling through the daily path of life, have you ever stumbled upon a hidden pocket of the universe? ( First line from a student in Stanford’s class of 2012 )

                                                                                                                                                                          There’s a dreamy and sci-fi element to this first sentence, as it tries to find the sublime (“the universe”) inside the prosaic (“daily path of life”).

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          First Sentence Idea 7: Lesson You Learned From the Story You’re Telling

                                                                                                                                                                          One way to think about how to do this kind of opening sentence well is to model it on the morals that ended each  Aesop’s fable . The lesson you learned should be slightly surprising (not necessarily intuitive) and something that someone else might disagree with.

                                                                                                                                                                          Perhaps it wasn’t wise to chew and swallow a handful of sand the day I was given my first sandbox, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. ( Meagan Spooner ’07 for Hamilton College )

                                                                                                                                                                          The best part of this hilarious sentence is that even in retrospect, eating a handful of sand is only possibly an unwise idea—a qualifier achieved through that great “perhaps.” So does that mean it was wise in at least some way to eat the sand? The reader wants to know more.

                                                                                                                                                                          All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. (Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina)

                                                                                                                                                                          This immediately sets readers to mentally flip through every unhappy family they’ve ever known to double-check the narrator’s assertion. Did he draw the right conclusion here? How did he come to this realization? The implication that he will tell us all about some dysfunctional drama also has a rubbernecking draw.

                                                                                                                                                                          This is the place in your essay where you go from small to big—from the life experience you describe in detail to the bigger point this experience illustrates about your world and yourself.

                                                                                                                                                                          Typically, the pivot sentence will come at the end of your introductory section, about halfway through the essay. I say sentence, but this section could be more than one sentence (though ideally no longer than two or three).

                                                                                                                                                                          So how do you make the turn? Usually you indicate in your pivot sentence itself that you are moving from one part of the essay to another. This is called signposting, and it’s a great way to keep readers updated on where they are in the flow of the essay and your argument. 

                                                                                                                                                                          Here are three ways to do this, with real-life examples from college essays published by colleges.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Pivot Idea 1: Expand the Time Frame

                                                                                                                                                                          In this pivot, you gesture out from the specific experience you describe to the overarching realization you had during it. Think of helper phrases such as “that was the moment I realized” and “never again would I.”

                                                                                                                                                                          Suddenly, two things simultaneously clicked. One was the lock on the door. (I actually succeeded in springing it.) The other was the realization that I’d been in this type of situation before. In fact, I’d been born into this type of situation. ( Stephen ’19 for Johns Hopkins University )

                                                                                                                                                                          This is a pretty great pivot, neatly connecting the story Stephen’s been telling (about having to break into a car on a volunteering trip) and his general reliance on his own resourcefulness and ability to roll with whatever life throws at him. It’s a double bonus that he accomplishes the pivot with a play on the word “click,” which here means both the literal clicking of the car door latch and the figurative clicking his brain does. Note also how the pivot crystallizes the moment of epiphany through the word “suddenly,” which implies instant insight.

                                                                                                                                                                          But in that moment I realized that the self-deprecating jokes were there for a reason. When attempting to climb the mountain of comedic success, I didn’t just fall and then continue on my journey, but I fell so many times that I befriended the ground and realized that the middle of the metaphorical mountain made for a better campsite. Not because I had let my failures get the best of me, but because I had learned to make the best of my failures. ( Rachel Schwartzbaum ’19 for Connecticut College )

                                                                                                                                                                          This pivot similarly focuses on a “that moment” of illuminated clarity. In this case, it broadens Rachel’s experience of stage fright before her standup comedy sets to the way she has more generally not allowed failures to stop her progress—and has instead been able to use them as learning experiences. Not only does she describe her humor as “self-deprecating,” but she also demonstrates what she means with that great “befriended the ground” line.

                                                                                                                                                                          It was on this first educational assignment that I realized how much could be accomplished through an animal education program—more, in some cases, than the aggregate efforts of all of the rehabilitators. I found that I had been naive in my assumption that most people knew as much about wildlife as I did, and that they shared my respect for animals. ( J.P. Maloney ’07 for Hamilton College )

                                                                                                                                                                          This is another classically constructed pivot, as J.P. segues from his negative expectations about using a rehabilitated wild owl as an educational animal to his understanding of how much this kind of education could contribute to forming future environmentalists and nature lovers. The widening of scope happens at once as we go from a highly specific “first educational assignment” to the more general realization that “much” could be accomplished through these kinds of programs.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Pivot Idea 2: Link the Described Experience With Others

                                                                                                                                                                          In this pivot, you draw a parallel between the life event that you’ve been describing in your very short story and other events that were similar in some significant way. Helpful phrases include “now I see how x is really just one of the many x’s I have faced,” “in a way, x is a good example of the x-like situations I see daily,” and “and from then on every time I …”

                                                                                                                                                                          This state of discovery is something I strive for on a daily basis. My goal is to make all the ideas in my mind fit together like the gears of a Swiss watch. Whether it’s learning a new concept in linear algebra, talking to someone about a programming problem, or simply zoning out while I read, there is always some part of my day that pushes me towards this place of cohesion: an idea that binds together some set of the unsolved mysteries in my mind. ( Aubrey Anderson ’19 for Tufts University )

                                                                                                                                                                          After cataloging and detailing the many interesting thoughts that flow through her brain in a specific hour, Aubrey uses the pivot to explain that this is what every waking hour is like for her “on a daily basis.” She loves learning different things and finds a variety of fields fascinating. And her pivot lets us know that her example is a demonstration of how her mind works generally.

                                                                                                                                                                          This was the first time I’ve been to New Mexico since he died. Our return brought so much back for me. I remembered all the times we’d visited when I was younger, certain events highlighted by the things we did: Dad haggling with the jewelry sellers, his minute examination of pots at a trading post, the affection he had for chilies. I was scared that my love for the place would be tainted by his death, diminished without him there as my guide. That fear was part of what kept my mother and me away for so long. Once there, though, I was relieved to realize that Albuquerque still brings me closer to my father. ( Essay #1 from Carleton College’s sample essays )

                                                                                                                                                                          In this pivot, one very painful experience of visiting a place filled with sorrowful memories is used as a way to think about “all the other times” the author had been to New Mexico. The previously described trip after the father’s death pivots into a sense of the continuity of memory. Even though he is no longer there to “guide,” the author’s love for the place itself remains.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Pivot Idea 3: Extract and Underline a Trait or Value

                                                                                                                                                                          In this type of pivot, you use the experience you’ve described to demonstrate its importance in developing or zooming in on one key attribute. Here are some ways to think about making this transition: “I could not have done it without characteristic y, which has helped me through many other difficult moments,” or “this is how I came to appreciate the importance of value z, both in myself and in those around me.”

                                                                                                                                                                          My true reward of having Stanley is that he opened the door to the world of botany. I would never have invested so much time learning about the molecular structure or chemical balance of plants if not for taking care of him. ( Michaela ’19 for Johns Hopkins University )

                                                                                                                                                                          In this tongue-in-cheek essay in which Michaela writes about Stanley, a beloved cactus, as if “he” has human qualities and is her child, the pivot explains what makes this plant so meaningful to its owner. Without having to “take care of him,” Michaela “would never have invested so much time learning” about plant biology. She has a deep affinity for the natural sciences and attributes her interest at least partly to her cactus.

                                                                                                                                                                          By leaving me free to make mistakes and chase wild dreams, my father was always able to help ground me back in reality. Personal responsibilities, priorities and commitments are all values that are etched into my mind, just as they are within my father’s. ( Olivia Rabbitt ’16 for Connecticut College )

                                                                                                                                                                          In Olivia’s essay about her father’s role in her life, the pivot discusses his importance by explaining his deep impact on her values. Olivia has spent the story part of her essay describing her father’s background and their relationship. Now, she is free to show how without his influence, she would not be so strongly committed to “personal responsibilities, priorities and commitments.”

                                                                                                                                                                          Want to build the best possible college application?

                                                                                                                                                                          We’ve collected many  examples of college essays published by colleges and offered a breakdown of how several of them are put together . Now, let’s check out a couple of examples of actual college essay beginnings to show you how and why they work.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Sample Intro 1

                                                                                                                                                                          A blue seventh place athletic ribbon hangs from my mantel. Every day, as I walk into my living room, the award mockingly congratulates me as I smile. Ironically, the blue seventh place ribbon resembles the first place ribbon in color; so, if I just cover up the tip of the seven, I may convince myself that I championed the fourth heat. But, I never dare to wipe away the memory of my seventh place swim; I need that daily reminder of my imperfection. I need that seventh place.

                                                                                                                                                                          Two years ago, I joined the no-cut swim team. That winter, my coach unexpectedly assigned me to swim the 500 freestyle. After stressing for hours about swimming 20 laps in a competition, I mounted the blocks, took my mark, and swam. Around lap 14, I looked around at the other lanes and did not see anyone. “I must be winning!” I thought to myself. However, as I finally completed my race and lifted my arms up in victory to the eager applause of the fans, I looked up at the score board. I had finished my race in last place. In fact, I left the pool two minutes after the second-to-last competitor, who now stood with her friends, wearing all her clothes.

                                                                                                                                                                          (From “The Unathletic Department” by Meghan ’17 for Johns Hopkins University )

                                                                                                                                                                          Here are some of the main reasons that this essay’s introduction is super effective.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #1: It’s Got a Great First Sentence

                                                                                                                                                                          The sentence is short but still does some scene setting with the descriptive “blue” and the location “from my mantel.” It introduces a funny element with “seventh place”—why would that bad of a showing even get a ribbon? It dangles information just out of reach, making the reader want to know more: what was this an award for? Why does this definitively non-winning ribbon hang in such a prominent place of pride?

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #2: It Has Lots of Detail

                                                                                                                                                                          In the intro, we get physical actions: “cover up the tip,” “mounted the blocks,” “looked around at the other lanes,” “lifted my arms up,” and “stood with her friends, wearing all her clothes.” We also get words conveying emotion: “mockingly congratulates me as I smile,” “unexpectedly assigned,” and “stressing for hours.” Finally, we get descriptive specificity in the precise word choice: “from my mantel” and “my living room” instead of simply “in my house,” and “lap 14” instead of “toward the end of the race.”

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #3: It Explains the Stakes

                                                                                                                                                                          Even though everyone can imagine the lap pool, not everyone knows exactly what the “500 freestyle” race is. Meghan elegantly explains the difficulty by describing herself freaking out over “swimming 20 laps in a competition,” which helps us to picture the swimmer going back and forth many times.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #4: It Has Great Storytelling

                                                                                                                                                                          We basically get a sports commentary play-by-play here. Even though we already know the conclusion—Meghan came in 7th—she still builds suspense by narrating the race from her point of view as she was swimming it. She’s nervous for a while, and then she starts the race.

                                                                                                                                                                          Close to the end, she starts to think everything is going well (“I looked around at the other lanes and did not see anyone. ‘I must be winning!’ I thought to myself.”). Everything builds to an expected moment of great triumph (“I finally completed my race and lifted my arms up in victory to the eager applause of the fans”) but ends in total defeat (“I had finished my race in last place”).

                                                                                                                                                                          Not only that, but the mildly clichéd sports hype is hilariously undercut by reality (“I left the pool two minutes after the second-to-last competitor, who now stood with her friends, wearing all her clothes”).

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #5: It Uses a Pivot Sentence

                                                                                                                                                                          This essay uses the time expansion method of pivoting: “But, I never dare to wipe away the memory of my seventh place swim; I need that daily reminder of my imperfection. I need that seventh place.” Coming last in the race was something that happened once, but the award is now an everyday experience of humility.

                                                                                                                                                                          The rest of the essay explores what it means for Meghan to constantly see this reminder of failure and to transform it into a sense of acceptance of her imperfections. Notice also that in this essay, the pivot comes before the main story, helping us “hear” the narrative in the way she wants us to.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          Sample Intro 2 

                                                                                                                                                                          “Biogeochemical. It’s a word, I promise!” There are shrieks and shouts in protest and support. Unacceptable insults are thrown, degrees and qualifications are questioned, I think even a piece of my grandmother’s famously flakey parantha whizzes past my ear. Everyone is too lazy to take out a dictionary (or even their phones) to look it up, so we just hash it out. And then, I am crowned the victor, a true success in the Merchant household. But it is fleeting, as the small, glossy, plastic tiles, perfectly connected to form my winning word, are snatched out from under me and thrown in a pile with all the disgraced, “unwinning” tiles as we mix for our next game of Bananagrams. It’s a similar donnybrook, this time ending with my father arguing that it is okay to use “Rambo” as a word (it totally is not).

                                                                                                                                                                          Words and communicating have always been of tremendous importance in my life: from silly games like Bananagrams and our road-trip favorite “word game,” to stunted communication between opposing grandparents, each speaking a different Indian language; from trying to understand the cheesemonger behind the counter with a deep southern drawl (I just want some Camembert!), to shaping a script to make people laugh.

                                                                                                                                                                          Words are moving and changing; they have influence and substance.

                                                                                                                                                                          With the first sentence, we are immediately thrust into the middle of the action—into an exciting part of an argument about whether “biogeochemical” is really a word. We’re also immediately challenged. Is this a word? Have I ever heard it before? Does a scientific neologism count as a word?

                                                                                                                                                                          Since the whole essay is going to be about words, it makes sense for Shaan to demonstrate his comfort with all different kinds of language:

                                                                                                                                                                          • Complex, elevated vocabulary, such as “biogeochemical” and “donnybrook”
                                                                                                                                                                          • Foreign words, such as “parantha” and “Camembert”
                                                                                                                                                                          • Colorful descriptive words, such as “shrieks and shouts,” “famously flakey, “whizzes past,” and “hash it out”
                                                                                                                                                                          • “Fake” words, such as “unwinning” and “Rambo”

                                                                                                                                                                          What’s great is that Shaan is able to seamlessly mix the different tones and registers these words imply, going from cerebral to funny and back again.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #3: It Uses a Pivot Sentence

                                                                                                                                                                          This essay uses the value-extraction style of pivot: “Words and communicating have always been of tremendous importance in my life.” After we see an experience linking Shaan’s clear love of his family with an interest in word games, he clarifies that this is exactly what the essay will be about—using a very straightforward pivoting sentence.

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          #4: It Piles On Examples to Avoid Vagueness

                                                                                                                                                                          The danger of this kind of pivot sentence is slipping into vague, uninformative statements, such as “I love words.” To avoid making a generalization the tells us nothing, the essay builds a list of examples of times when Shaan saw the way that words connect people: games (“Bananagrams and our road-trip favorite ‘word game,’”), his mixed-language family (“grandparents, each speaking a different Indian language”), encounters with strangers (“from trying to understand the cheesemonger”), and finally the more active experience of performing (“shaping a script to make people laugh”).

                                                                                                                                                                          But the essay stops short of giving so many examples that the reader drowns. I’d say three to five examples is a good range—as long as they’re all different kinds of the same thing.

                                                                                                                                                                          • A killer first line
                                                                                                                                                                          • A detailed description of an experience from your life
                                                                                                                                                                          • A pivot to the bigger picture, in which you explain why and how this experience has shaped you, your point of view, and/or your values.

                                                                                                                                                                          You don’t have to write the introduction first, and you certainly don’t have to write your first sentence firstInstead, start by developing your story by telling it out loud to a friend. You can then work on your first sentence and your pivot.

                                                                                                                                                                          The first sentence should either be short, punchy, and carry some ambiguity or questions, or be a detailed and beautiful description setting an easily pictured scene. The pivot, on the other hand, should answer the question, “How does the story you’ve told connect to a larger truth or insight about you?”
