Write a five-paragraph narrative essay that gives the three most important influences in your life. Each body paragraph should deal with a different influence, and should 1) describe that influence 2) explain how that influence is relevant to you today 3) give examples that demonstrate how that influence is reflected in your life today. Because this narrative deals with your own life, it is permissible to use "I", "we", and "us," although use them with discretion. "You" should still be avoided. Also, since the examples will come from your own experience, you DO NOT need sources or a Works Cited page. However, you still must turn in an outline of your paper with the final essay and have a thesis statement that lists your influences SPECIFICALLY. Remember, the typeset should be one of the fonts we discussed in class, size 12 pt.
