    • I really like how you describe yourself in this little excerpt. I like that you give a lot of detail and insight to the reader of who you are. One thing I would say is to remember to capitalize after every period and know what words or letter should be capitalized. One thing I also think that could add to your writing it perhaps adding metaphors. For example, ” I’m so good at basketball that I feel like I could be the next…” Something like that would add a lot more to this. But, overall, you did a good job.
