What is a biography?
  • A biography is a story of someones life. It is a
    great way to say who you are, what you do and how
    good you are at this. Writing a bio is a
    complicated task because its difficult to write
    about yourself. Besides, many students are afraid
    of sounding like show-offs, boring or think they
    have nothing worth to tell. Here are some tips
    which will help you out for sure.

3
Correct format
  • Student bio is composed in the third person and
    is usually one or two paragraphs long. All depend
    on the level of your life and education
    experience. You must be short, clear and include
    relevant information.

4
Begin with
  • Start with your name and a phrase which shows who
    you are. Tell about your school and college,
    academic interests and goals. Be as concise as
    possible.

Dont forget to mention
  • You can include in your bio
  • the place of your born and current residence
  • education
  • work experience
  • accomplishment and awards
  • hobbies, interests, and passions
  • your life outside of a school or college.
  • Write a personal biography outline and pick only
    relevant info. If there is something too
    personal, its better to keep it in private.

6
Tell a story
  • Help your readers to understand you deeply. Say
    about volunteering, studying abroad, sports, arts
    and so on which help you to stand out from other
    students. Find those moments that have influenced
    your life and developed you as a personality.

7
Tell about your interests
  • Describe your personal and academic interests
    painting, singing, cooking, dancing, playing on a
    piano, etc. In your bio, highlight your
    uniqueness.

8
Your goals
  • There is a great saying, A life with a goal is a
    life that is whole. Tell your readers what goal
    you have and what youre doing to gain it.

9
Tell about your ups and downs
  • Present that youre capable of learning from your
    life mistakes and still can be positive and
    motivated to succeed.

10
Accomplishments
  • Relevant achievements and awards are welcomed in
    your bio. However, dont simply list them
    describe them.

11
Make your bio personalized
  • Filling your bio with a little personality is
    great! This is a nice way to break an ice between
    you and readers and invite them to care. However,
    dont mention too sensitive or embarrassing for
    your audience facts.

12
Cut all unnecessary facts
  • You must narrow down your information and be
    selective. You can add some anecdote but only if
    theyre relevant and dont take too much place in
    your story.

13
Dont try to sound smart
  • Writing a personal biography demands clear
    vocabulary, avoiding slang, complicated language,
    contractions, and abbreviations. Put yourself in
    the readers feet does your bio seen readable
    and engaging?

14
Use active verbs
  • Forget about the Passive Voice and use active
    verbs which make your bio more alive and
    appalling.

15
Avoid buzzwords
  • Overused words such as creative or
    innovative. Show concrete examples which show
    you as a unique and extraordinary person.

16
Humor is always a winning strategy
  • Connect with your audience telling funny details
    about yourselves. It will help to engage them and
    show you as a person with a great sense of humor.

17
Look through examples
  • There are so many professional bio writing
    services which can present great templates. See
    how others present themselves, what they include,
    which techniques they use, etc.

18
Proofread and edit
  • Quite rarely professional biography writing is
    flawless from the first time. Re-read a bio,
    eliminate grammar and spelling errors, find
    something you forgot to mention. Also, ask your
    friends to revise for you. A fresh pair of eyes
    can find information which is unclear or full of
    mistakes.

    from your story. Feel free to use this amazing
