My personal essay highlights the values of the enjoyment of life and true friendship. My essay is a reflective piece where I look back on the best moments I've had at sleepovers with my friends. The moments which helped to shape my friendships. The essay is full of different experiences which have made me feel some enjoyment in my life. With this piece, I want to make the reader laugh just like I continuously laugh during a sleepover. I also wanted to bring across how through our teenage lives of stress and teen drama there are also moments of fun which we sometimes overlook. I put a lot of love into my essay and that is what my friends put into my life. The values: 'enjoyment of life' and 'true friendship' are things I think about every day and I really hope I injected them into my essay, through discussing all the amazing moments I have experienced at sleepovers that I wrote down so I'd never forget them.
