This allow myself to critically think I must remember that formats, and flow, of my high school lessons, and expand them in my college essays. After hearing different points of views from peers, not every student has had the same skill level that was taught in high school. Thankfully, my school has such a positive community; I was taught many different methods that have advanced me in my writing for college.

I find that the use of Critical Thinking in the past few months have shaped my mind to become a better student. I have gained responsibilities now, such as working and bills. Though Critical Thinking is not new to me, I find myself engaging it more over the start of my college experience than ever before. In my own opinion, college has widened my aspect of Critical Thinking, and given me new ways to put it in use. When I first was introduced into Critical Thinking in my earliest years of high school, I discovered that I was not using Critical Thinking to its full potential, and thought it was just another lesson. I did not realize then, but now I see that every choice or judgment I had made was based on a new skill
