Introduce yourself! (L2-57)


Hi everyone,

Write a short introduction (about 75 words) about yourself. This will:

  • help you become comfortable with Brain Drain and
  • allow you and your classmates to get to know each other.

All of your writing assignments will have two parts:

  1. your main post (in this case, your self-introduction)
    DUE WED 7 MARCH, 11:59 pm
  2. a brief, but thoughtful reply to one or more of your classmates
    DUE THURS 8 MARCH, 11:59 pm

If you’re not sure what to write about, here are some things you can include:

  • where you grew up and went to school
  • what you like to do in your free time
  • favorites (food, books, musicians, TV shows, etc.)
  • bad habits
  • some goals this semester
  • what you would like to do someday

We look forward to hearing from you!
