Also, you will want to avoid using first-person pronouns in this essay. If need be, at your Studio appointment, ask your consultant how to avoid using first-person pronouns in an academic essay. I will deduct 2 points for every use of first-person pronoun. Make sure to create the best essay that you can (make sure that the first line of every paragraph is indented; the first letter of every sentence is capitalized; proper names should be capitalized, etc) I will be looking for basic grammar, spelling and essay format.

This essay needs to be 3 pages in length, size 12 and Times New Roman font, and double spaced.
