Express Yourself...the right way
The second LIP Session is hosted by Tarrant County College, Northwest Campus. This session offers a writing skills workshop that addresses the importance of effective writing skills; developing and practicing an "elevator speech"; and thank you note techniques to help you stand out from the crowd.
Come prepared to brainstorm and write a personal statement for your college or scholarship applications. Use this opportunity to get ahead on college application essays and receive professional feedback for your rough drafts.
Thank you to our host, Tarrant County College, Northwest Campus, for providing breakfast for our students and volunteers.
**During this session we would like to assist you with your writing skills and we ask that you bring your essay with you. The scholarship essay questions are directly from 2018 APPLYTEXAS. Select one prompt that you connect with the most:
Essay A: What was the environment in which you were raised? Describe your family, home, neighborhood, or community, and explain how it has shaped you as a person.
Essay B: Most students have an identity, an interest, or a talent that defines them in an essential way. Tell us about yourself.
Essay C: You’ve got a ticket in your hand – Where will you go? What will you do? What will happen when you get there?
