“Never ever give up. Look inside yourself and see what you are made of.” These are the words of Diane Nyad, a woman who swam from Cuba to Key West, Florida.  She swam over 100 miles and she is in her early 60’s.  She tried it when she was in her 20’s and failed.

This made me start thinking about real people and their true stories.  Stories based on the lives of real people who actually walked this earth can be really compelling.  Why not look and find one of those stories of someone who inspires you and write an essay about it.

I know.  I know.   School has just started and this prompt feels more like school work than fun.  This kind of essay can be one that you use when applying for scholarships..  Bits and pieces of it discussing what inspires you speaks volumes.
