Homework Help: Essay

Posted by Amanda on Sunday, September 16, 2007 at 2:53pm.

I had to right an essay in English and i was wondering if anyone could critique it. The topic is "Once you have completed your education, would you return to your hometown to begin your adult life? Why/Why not?"

Here is my Essay:

I have lived in the Poquoson for fifteen years. The small town life may be for some people, but it’s not for me. I plan to move away from my hometown after I graduate from school and am ready to make my way in the world.
One reason that I have chosen not to live in Poquoson after graduation is that my career will not allow me to live in a small town environment. I plan to have a career in international relations or law, and my ultimate goal is to work for one of the branches of the United Nations. If I were to live in Poquoson that would be much harder to do than if I lived in a larger city like New York, Boston, or Washington D.C. As my career will require a lot of traveling a big city would be a better place to travel out of than a small town. This is especially true for the international travels I will be taking.
If I do decide to go into law or something internationally oriented I will need some familiarity with other cultures. However, with a small town like Poquoson that is almost impossible. In my town there is not much racial or ethnic diversity. If I am going to travel the world then I need to be exposed to cultures that aren’t present in Poquoson.
The main reason that I have decided not to live in my hometown is that I love big city life. When I visited New York City, Boston, and Washington D.C. my favorite thing to do was to walk around the city. I enjoy the business of the city and the fact that there is always something to do. The best thing about big cities is that every time a person leaves their home they see someone and something new. Big city life seems like a very exciting life to lead, at least it seems that way to me.
Although I can’t say for sure whether or not I will live in my hometown after school, I am pretty positive that I will move to a big city like New York, Boston, or Washington D.C. Even though I want to live in a big city, it doesn’t mean that after living there for years I might not come back home to raise my family.
