Do not consult research or outside sources for this essay; if you do, you must cite and acknowledge them correctly. Remember that the assignment is to write about the traits you admire in the person you selected. At no point should you include unnecessary biographical information.
You are not writing a biography; you are writing about the traits you selected. Each paragraph should remain focused on the trait it is supposed to be developing, and each paragraph should support the thesis (that the person is worthy of admiration).
