Have you ever been asked to write a narrative essay? It’s essentially a story, usually told about something that you did or that happened to you. However it differs from a regular story because you include information on how the events influenced you – how they changed you in some way. You might underestimate the importance of a narrative essay because it isn’t the most common type of essay assigned to students. But most college admissions essays are narratives, and think about how much difference those can make in a person’s life!
