Looking for a scholarship?
A statement of purpose?
The girl? Sorry, lady?
Oh! Nobody really knows.
The good thing I tried is Google on a lot of “hows” and wrote my first “crap”, sent it to a friend of mine who knew how to laugh at jokes, but would still make sense of it, afterwards rewrote it, then sent it to the same friend and sent it to an old colleague at the same time.
(you can still see the struggle with VERYyyyyyyyy long sentences, right?)
Then to a lecturer (or your mentor, role model or even parent), then back to me. And voila! A scholarship-winning essay. My point? There is always someone willing to be one of two: friend or colleague. So start!
