help on exemplification essay?

QUESTION
help on exemplification essay?
I have to do an exemplification essay on the first three things I would buy if I won the lottery. I have never done an exemplification so I don’t really know how to start it. I need help on all the details and examples and stuff. Any help would be great. Thanks.

ANSWER
Exemplification means making examples. You make a statement and then offer examples to support it.

***

I try to be generous. I volunteer and donate money to charity. If I won the lottery, I’d give lots of money to charities like Doctors without Borders, the American Red Cross, and Soldiers’ Angels.

I also love to travel. There are so many interesting places to see in the world. I’d like to cruise the Inside Passage to Alaska, and I really want to see Petra in Jordan. I’d like to go to Scotland and see the Edinburgh Tattoo.

***

See how first I make a statement and then use examples to back it up. Maybe you would like to buy a classic car, like a Mustang for driving around and a Model T for showing in parades. Maybe you’d like to buy a big house and adopt a bunch of dogs, and you like greyhounds, whippets, and St. Bernards. Make a statement and provide examples.
