Writing a personal statement is not easy. The main reason why it's so hard is because most universities don't require a personal statement, which means you have no guide to tell what kind of things you should write and where. However, getting help doesn't have to be difficult. I'm going to give you some tips on how to help you write your personal statement.
The first tip I can give you is to make sure you know exactly what you want to say when writing this statement. Don't try to guess at what you want to say or you'll regret it later on. Even if you think you've got an idea, write it down before you say it, so you can check your idea for any grammatical errors. A good writing program like word-press can help you do this. If you don't have one of these programs, then you can just use your word processing program to make your paper.
The second thing I would recommend is to seek help with your writing. There are many guides online to help you out, but I don't think any of them will do any good unless you have someone to show you in person how to do it. I know I wouldn't want to copy what someone else has written, so I prefer to read a book on the subject to learn what to do. Also, some of these books have examples of personal statements you can read. This makes it much easier to follow along with. If you can afford to go to a writing class, then that would be the best way to get some help, but I don't think it's necessary.
The next thing to remember is that your statement has to be very clear and specific. Don't write like a student essay. Don't even sound like you're a student. Make sure that you have a thesis statement, a reason for writing the essay, and what you'll be writing about throughout the period of the semester if you're writing a statement for an exam.
Finally, after you have done all this, it's time to polish it up and get it into a format that can be read and practiced. Look at your personal statement and ask yourself "What do I really want to say here?" Write down the parts of your statement that you think are the most important. Then make your outline and write those key points on the paper.
Once you've worked your outline into a shape that works for you, read it several times. Play around with it to get used to the format. When you find that you're comfortable with it, then it's ready to copy from a good writing class or free online. Hopefully, I helped you learn how to help me write my personal statement. Use it as a model for how to write a personal statement.
