In this tutorial, we learn how to do a cohesive personal statement. If you are a student and need to write your personal statement, get started on it early so you have a while to work on it! Start out by working backwards, which means to start with your life now and then building up to how you plan to achieve further goals. You need to make sure this is short and you also need to make sure you don't brag about yourself. If you are wanting to travel abroad, make yourself stand out from other people and good luck!
