I need to write a narrative/essay..any suggestions?

QUESTION
I need to write a narrative/essay..any suggestions?
I am trying to apply to a scholarship course. But, in order to do that, I basically need to write a narrative paragraph or essay on why I am better than everyone else, and why I should get into the course over everyone esle. Of course, I will not be the only person in the course, but you get the idea. I’m not good at bragging about myself. I’ve also heard that the people who read these over don’t like seeing the word “I” too many times, if at all. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

ANSWER
Write a list of the good qualities you have that want to put forward. Then put them in outline form. Then write your narrative.

You will have to curtail your use of the word I. Notice that you’ve used it or a form of it 9 times just in the paragraph you wrote asking your question.

You could write for example.. I like corn. I like potatoes. I like meat. Or… you could write, I enjoy a meal that includes corn, meat and potatoes.

They want to hear how you will use the education the scholarship will provide to help humanity or make a difference in the lives of others.
