helping the team because I was too afraid of making a
mistake. That aspect of my character led the first years
of my high school life. I refrained from asking questions
in class, afraid they might be considered too stupid or
dumb by my classmates. All the while, I went to practice

Yet my apprehension prevailed as I continued to

fear getting put in the game in case another player was
injured. I was still afraid of making mistakes and getting
blamed by screaming coaches and angry teammates.
Sometimes these fears came true. During my
sophomore season, my position at backup guard led me
to play in the varsity games on many occasions. On such
occasions, I often made mistakes. Most of the time the
mistakes were not significant; they rarely changed the
outcome of a play. Yet I received a thorough verbal
lashing at practice for the mistakes I had made. These
occurrences only compounded my fears of playing.

made great plays, for which I was congratulated. Now,
as I dawn on my senior year of football and am faced

other type of texts?
Abstraction A personal essay can be a narrative, a story about your
own experience. It can be about a place you have
visited, things you have seen or done, or funny things

that have happened to you.

A personal narrative has the following elements:

It is based on a personal experience in which you
have gained significant meaning, insight, or learned
a lesson. It can also be based on a milestone or life-
altering event.
It is personal narrative. The writer tells the story by
including dialogue, imagery, characterization,
conflict, plot, and setting.

It is written in the first person. (I point-of-view)

It is an autobiographical story in which the writer

describes an incident that resulted in some
personal growth or development.
