My Working Portfolio
I'm a consultant with the New York City Writing Project
Paragraph 1: Who are you? What's important to know about you? What ethnic and cultural heritages are in your family? Where were you born, and what neighborhoods have you lived in? What schools have you been to? When did something important happen to you, a turning point?
Paragraph 2: What do you like to do IN school, including extra-curricular activities? What are you good at in school? What do you enjoy doing OUT of school? What are you particularly good at? How did you get good at it? What movies, shows, cartoons, games, books have you enjoyed - when you were a small child? and now?
Paragraph 3: Tell us about your family members - those who are most precious to you - those you've lost, and those you've gained. Who are you lucky to have in your life?
