This I Believe

Your This I Believe essay is due on Tuesday January 21st. You will be reading it aloud in class. Here are the requirements adapted from the This I Believe submission page (I encourage you to submit them to This I Believe if you wish).
Keep the following in mind when you write your essay:
  • Limit your essay to 350-500 words.
  • Describe an event that shaped your beliefs or a person who inspired them.
  • Avoid sermons and editorials—no soapbox declamations, please!
  • Read more of the This I Believe essay-writing tips.
You can peruse multiple examples at Often the ones put on the radio are a bit better, but not necessarily so.
Andrea Kang's (Class of 2009) This I Believe essay. The Tacoma News Tribune re-posted it from its original posting so all of the comments are gone, but her essay is here.
You will need TWO copies. One for me and one you read in front of the class.
