A sample I wrote:


You should know something about me.  It might help you understand why I did what I did.  I was only eleven-years-old that day.  That morning I left the house, saying goodbye to my dad and little brother.  Little did I know I would be a different person by nightfall. I would not be the shy and irresponsible person I was that morning I left our 3rd floor apartment. Up until that day long past I had no goals in life, I had no friends really, and my life was just a long string of day following day.  But it all changed for me and later that night I met a stranger who would teach me one of the most important lessons of my life.  Here’s the story of an afternoon which changed my life...for the better.
