    DON'T start any paper's first draft by writing the introduction! You can't effectively introduce a paper that you haven't written yet.

    Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:

    Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: Revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Your thesis statement must include factual information plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)

    This is one of the very best places I've seen online to help students write good thesis statements. It shows you sentences that aren't thesis statements and how to turn each one into real thesis statements.

I've used this as my introduction "Being a young Person Today is easier in some sense and harder in some sense as we may have more freedom, resources,technology but all this has come with much more responsibilities that we have to deal with" can you improve it or help me put it in a better way using my main puts.

    I don't want to see an introduction. What you need first is your thesis statement (one sentence) and your outline. Re-post when you have those figured out.
