My essay is about what I believe a hero can be. Many people believe heroes are the people in movies running around in tights, or the people who sacrifice everything, but I believe a hero is someone who can be a simple savior in any everyday situation. My audience is anyone who wants to know what I believe being a hero is. Since the definition can be very scattered, this essay was written to say that being a hero is situational. My genre is motivational because I want everyone to know that they have the ability to be a hero. You don’t have to sacrifice a lot, nor try and be a vigilante. One of the challenges I had was trying to come up with an appropriate experience to write about based on the prompts we were given. Once I chose it, writing the essay was done in one sitting. During peer review, we both realized we didn’t use the exact format for the essay, so I had to rewrite my introduction and conclusion. He also said that I described things thoroughly but didn’t use telling details as well as I could. Overall, the essay was a good look back on my life for me and I enjoyed writing it.
