how to start my persuasive essay?

Here is a good beginning, you may remake it or use it like an example:
“The wonderful thing about mankind is that no two human beings in this world are totally identical. Even identical twins have their own individual traits that make them unique people. Therefore, everyone is different from all the others and possesses gifts and talents that are unique. Some people might be academically gifted. Some might be talented in sports and other physical activities. Others might be good at arts. Thus, it is difficult to typecast people into a single mould.”
