EducationUSA Mentorship Program

Before you begin your first draft, you want to warm up. Don’t think of it as “writing” anything.

Think of it as just putting notes on paper. Putting down something about someone that may be useful to someone. The point is not to get intimidated. You want to trick your mind into allowing you to think, speak and write genuinely.


The goal of this exercise is to come up with 10 things that are interesting about you. It can be something you have done, or something that has happened to you, something you attended, somewhere you went. Try to write them from the point of view of someone else.


Just try:


….. don’t stop before you finish something….don’t review it or edit it…….just put something down……
