*Autobiography: This essay is a 750-1000 word (~3 page) personal autobiography. The purpose of this paper is to historicize your own life. Therefore, it should delineate important events in your life as well as explain how your personal experiences have connected to key moments in the state’s, the nation’s history, or the world’s history.
You are not writing a comprehensive summary of your life history. Rather, you are writing a summary of your life in terms of three key historical events. For example, I may write how my life and perspective of the world changed on September 11, 2001 as a result of the terrorist attack. Or I may talk about how the Great Recession impacted my family and, potentially, my life course as a result of the downturn in the housing market or economy. You might even discuss how an event opened your mind to greater national/world affairs. For example, the space shuttle Challenger explosion is one my earliest memories and was both a national tragedy but also the first time I grasped the word hero or comprehended the magnitude of the risks that some people take for their jobs.
No matter what you choose, make sure that you clearly connect your life to the events that you choose —how you were influenced by them, how they changed your perspective/family dynamic/life course, etc.
At minimum, you should discuss three events, explaining how they relate to your life. The events you choose should be from your lifetime with rare exceptions (for example, if you were exceptionally close to your grandfather and he fought in Vietnam then you could potentially choose the Vietnam War – likely check with me first).
These events should be world, national, state, or local historical events. These are not meant to be personal events (birth of a child, death of a relative, etc.). While those events are certainly distinct and important, we are trying to focus on connection to an event that impacted the larger community (even national community or worldwide).
Spelling, grammar, and structure do count as part of your overall grade (no more than 10 points).
Note: try to take some time to think through, or even research, events from your lifetime that may have impacted you. If available, talk to your parents or relatives as you may not be fully aware of some of the events that had a significant impact on your life. You could also Google major life events from different years and see what comes up. Some of the most significant events in your life may not come to mind easily but when you see them listed you may go “Oh, of course!” A few examples include:
Shuttle Challenger explosion
Gulf War I
World Wide Web is publically debuted
The Cold War ends
The Los Angeles Riots
Hurricane Andrew
Centennial Olympic bombing during Summer Olympics in Atalnta
Columbine High School shooting
No Child Left Behind Act passed
September 11 terrorist attacks
Patriot Act passed
Enron Scandal
Tornado in Moore, Oklahoma
Hurricane Charley
Tsunami Indian Ocean (Banda Aceh, Indonesia)
Hurricane Katrina
Death of Saddam Hussein
Virginia Tech school shooting
Great Recession
Election of Barak Obama
Death of Osama Bin Laden
Earthquake/Tsunami Japan (nuclear meltdown)
Sandy Hook School Shooting
Boston Marathon Bombing
Death of Fidel Castro
Pulse Nightclub Terrorist Attack
Presidential election
Hurricane Irma (Florida)
Hurricane Harvey (Texas)
Hurricane Maria (Puerto Rico)
Lass Vegas Mass Shooting
NFL Player protest during national anthem
#MeToo movement (Harvey Weinstein accusations, etc.)
End of Castro era in Cuba (Raul steps aside)
Parkland School Shooting
Paradise Camp Fire (CA)
#MeToo movement goes global
Saudia Arabia allows women to drive
Fire at Cathedral of Notre Dame (France)

*Events from 2020, including the Covid-19 pandemic, recession, protests, etc. should NOT be utilized as they are not yet concluded and true impact/analysis/reflection cannot be determined.
