Can you use the word I and YOU in a reflective essay?
I would say YES, use I and you in your essay.
Normally when you are asked to write a refletive essay you need to look back on what you have either learned or done in the past and “reflect” on your experience. You are basically critiquing your actions or thoughts, and judging what you would do differently or keep the same during your next experience.
For example, in the field of education, student-teachers are always asked to reflect on their practice teaching experience so that they can judge how their lesson went in the classroom, which will lead to improvements in the future.
Best of luck with for paper!
