How to start off a good essay?
Im writing an essay for this scholarship to this really nice high school. Any suggestions?? >.< ANSWER Maybe you can begin by stating your background, how your life has been; hard/easy, what you would like to do with your life and how this school can help you, how you heard about this particular school, what you have to offer to this school, why you would be honored to attend. Details such as those usually catch the attention of the administrators granting the scholarship. But try not to sound too whiny or greedy or that you are entitled to this, but rather that you would be grateful in having their selection be you. Be respectful, use proper grammar/English (Absolutely NO slang or 'txt' lingo) and proper essay structure. Good Luck.
