First, Do an Introduction about yourself. This will be your Thesis. ( you tell your reader what you are going to tell them)
Follow by " 3 things you like. example: do you like sport , music , anything you like to do.
Point 1. You tell them what you like. (sport)
Point 2. You tell them ( personality)
Point 3. You tell them ( dislike)
Make sure you support your point.
Lastly,conclusion . Again, you tell them what you told them.

I hope this make sense. When you follow these steps and you will have essay about yourself. Myself, follow these steps and I get better and better each day. Above, step is from my English/Writing Tutor so I am passing it to you.

Hi Menchie, let's see something you write! I look forward to seeing what you can do. A lot of people improve their skill and make friends here. Welcome to EssayForum! :-)

This makes it easy: Start every paragraph with a TOPIC SENTENCE that tells the IDEA OF THE PARAGRAPH.
Every idea gets a paragraph. Know what I mean? It's easy.

You can have one big theme that you keep referring to, a theme for the whole essay. Express that in the first and past paragraph.

Just make a powerful presentation of yourself. Open up the floodgates of your creativity.

This is a little too simplistic. I think it is too obvious, because anyone could say the same thing. It is better if you get very specific about a goal you have for the future. What do you want to achieve in the world? What are you all about? That is what I think the reader is most interested in.

I'll fix some of the grammar below:
Hi, my name is Frank Strong, and my reason for attending college is a desire to advance my education and become a more productive person. I am not motivated by the desire to make money. It's about the wonderful career I would be getting out of this -- to make my life better, to be able to accomplish what life has to offer me.

:-)
hi Menchie,I suggest you to give a very good starting and a good ending to your essay....in between you can always fill in something about yourself using the suggestions given by others,hope this helps

Consider the time when you first came to learn about VCU, what made you decide that this would be the right place for you to begin your out of the country education? Write those reasons down on a separate page. Now, think about who you are in terms of the way your countrymen and relatives see you. Do you like the way they perceive who you are or not? List down your qualities as a person that you feel are your strengths. Then try to connect it to your interest in VCU. How does VCU connect with your idea of your personal development? The combination of these individualized information will create the representation of who you are in relation to your interest in VCU. You don't need to overthink things. Just focus on 2 things, why you believe you can succeed at VCU and how VCU can help you develop as a person. Then say that these are the information that you considered when you began to seriously consider attentind VCU.

Try to sell yourself with your achievements (if there is any). Also, universities and scholarships like people who are active in organizations since they can help the candidate polish their leadership skills.

If you do not have achievements, you can talk about your qualities as a person. Being diligent, able to finish your study on time, love writing and join lots of writing competitions, those are some examples of qualities that you can use to compel the reviewer about your strengths.
