Scholarship Persuasive Essay
Would you like to live in a world where no one got hurt by the hands of someone else? In this essay, I am going to state why I think the world needs good people. The worlds need good people because without them society would not function and people would not have to live in fear anymore.
Without good people in this world, our society would not function properly. We need laws and standards to keep people in line. We need a good foundation to support our world, and that foundation is the government. We need order and justice, or else people would do what they want. There would be nothing to separate ourselves and the animal kingdom, because that is exactly what we would become.
If everyone in the world were good, we would no longer have to live in fear. We lock our doors at night in order to feel protected , and feel hesitant when strangers start a conversation with us on the street. We cannot trust anyone these days, really. In a perfect world, we would not have to worry about our children getting kidnapped or our friends getting mugged, because no one would feel the need to harm others.
I can understand the difference of opinion, however. I can understand that we don't necessarily need "good people" because the people that already inhabit the earth can make it good, if we try harder. We can find the good in every person and thing, and most people are capable of change.
Despite that, I do believe that the world does need good people. Although I think it is true that people can change, I also believe that we make the future. We have to raise our children to be good, if we want a better world for them, and future generations to come. For the sake of society and humanity, good people are essential and are needed for a better world. Steps that we can take to achieve this are: building a more efficient and justice system and the parents have to become better at raising their kids to be successful and respectable.
Letter Of Recommendation
To whom it may concern,
My name is Makayla Thull, and I work as a profiler for the FBI in the BAU. I have known Samantha Estrada for several years now so I feel as if I am qualified to write this letter of recommendation. We met during our freshman year of High School, immediately becoming friends. After graduation, we went our separate ways, but still remained in contact. She went into Kinesiology as I went into Law enforcement. Her experiences are what make her eligible for this position.
Samantha can contribute many things for this position. She has a lot of experience in this specific department. This includes; organizational skills, leadership skills, teamwork skills, and time management skills. She is a very hard worker, and I can account for that. We have worked on many projects together in the past. We did a College project and a Financial Aid project, both during freshman year. I can tell you she is very loyal to her commitments, and has never let me down.
Samantha has other characteristics that make her perfect for this position. This includes that she is athletic, outgoing, smart, nice, determined, punctual, and creative. Also, she is good at multitasking and has a lot of endurance. She has played many sports, such as soccer and volleyball. She is friendly and always wants to make people feel good about themselves. This is what makes her qualified for the position as a physical trainer.
Again, I am writing this letter because no other person knows how highly qualified she is for this job. I highly recommend her for the job, as I am qualified to do so.
