Geography Student

Geography Student Sample
The short essay by a geography student applying to an internship program opens with the writer
admitting that she previously had a limited view of geography, then describing how a course changed
her way of thinking so that she came to understand geography as a “balance of physical, social, and
cultural studies.” Despite her limited experience, she shows that she has aspirations of joining the Peace
Corps or obtaining a law degree, and her final paragraph links her interests directly to the internship
program to which she is applying.
