As a student, I have taken multiple English classes in high school. English class has never been my favorite throughout school. Many people enjoy the class due to the chance to be able to express themselves through writing. My biggest struggle writing is being able to add detail to essays in which that I must use creative writing. When writing essays that involve statistics or proven facts, I tend to excel more than using creative writing skills.

How well you can write can determine how well you do in a class or at a job. I would love to see myself improve as a writer and a reader to help myself succeed. Rhetoric is a very interesting concept we use in writing and advertisement and it will be a very useful concept to use for future assignments in other courses and my future career.
