SAMPLE WRITING
I am Kim Lee. I am now 17 years old. When I was at the age of 15 I started
getting acne.
My face looked terrible and I always felt depressed and insecure about
appearance. Then I came to see one of my best friends, who always gave me
good advice and asked her for advice. She told me that I should wash my face
several times a day and try different anti acne products, squeeze pimples often.
But this way doesn't help a lot. The result of that was 60% of my face was
covered with acne.
I found a website advertising an effective way to remove acne, and they advised
me to see Dr. Kangnam. Dr. Kangnam gave me a detailed plan to remove acne
on my face. First, he advised me to wash my face only twice a day because
washing face too often may cause skin irritation. Second, I have to take
prescription medicine. Third, I had to follow a healthy diet. Dr. Kangnam also
advised me not to stay up late. After six months acne clears up. And now I feel
very happy and confident.
