Hello there! I am Laura Callisen, and I fancy myself to be a modern “Renaissance person.” I suppose my 30-something self began my incredible journey after having been born in Stavanger, Norway and then immigrating to the U.S. (Utah, actually) at the age of 5. I am certain that this change was more of a cultural “shock” for my parents than for me, because I quickly mastered the language and was clever enough to “play the game” of public education in America. After graduating from Skyline High School, where I spent two years as the school newspaper editor, obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in English and journalism from the University of Utah was a natural culmination of my love for writing.

My inclination to be socially conscious led me to lots of community outreach and volunteering during my college years, especially in the areas of educational and housing improvement for the poor and a number of environmental crusades. My passion for philosophy and travel have now taken over, and I am enthralled with the widely varied value systems of all cultures in which I can immerse myself, if only temporarily. My life as a freelance writer allows a freedom I never want to sacrifice for a stuffy office!

Guide On Writing a Self-Introduction Essay
We all learned how to write a self-introduction essay in elementary school. Granted, these were pretty simplistic little pieces. Usually a teacher, at the beginning of the school year, wanted to know a little bit about his/her students and asked them to write a little bit about themselves – what was their favorite TV show, what hobbies or activities they participated in, what was their favorite subject, etc.

How to Write an Outline for a Research Paper – You Need a Plan!
Constructing a good research paper outline just makes sense. It keeps your ideas organized, lets you present your information, ideas or opinions in a logical order, and help you make sure you have not left anything out. If you write a research paper without using an outline, your paper is pretty much doomed to be dis-organized, and professors tend to hate dis-organization.

How To Write A Descriptive Essay About A Person
The is something about the personal essays - sometimes they are referred to as “character sketches.” But it is difficult to learn how to write a descriptive essay about a person, because we really do not read them often. We get “pictures” in our heads about characters in a piece of fiction over many pages of writing; and most non-fiction does not entail character sketches.

The Compare and Contrast Essay Prompts
Apples and oranges; dogs and cats; spring and fall. These were a few of the topics we were given for a compare and contrast essay as kids in primary school. We made two columns and listed their similarities and their differences, and then we wrote two paragraphs. My thoughts about this type of essay back then were that they were really easy to write. I no longer think that.
