In this episode, we talk about 3 steps to start writing your statement of purpose. These steps are:

  1. Write about something you care about, about the stories. Create an outline to organize your ideas/stories.
  2. Use simple language and words to form your sentences. Create an objective and find out how others perceive.
  3. Write for 15 minutes using pen and paper before you actually start writing your statement of purpose. This gets your mind to slow down to improve your writing by deliberately thinking about the ideas you’re writing about the words you’re using to describe them.


These foundational steps build a strong statement of purpose.
