For this Action Project in my Art of Rhetoric course, I wrote an essay based off of an application question from a college I am applying to. I chose to answer the question: “Indicate a person who has had a significant influence on you, and describe that influence.” I decided to write about my mother and her influence on me. Overall this project helped me create a better essay for college, answered a lot of questions I had about the essay, and gave me new ideas. My class gives good constructive criticism so I learned that even though it’s a hard thing to do, sometimes it helps a lot.
