First, Do an Introduction about yourself. This will be your Thesis. ( you tell your reader what you are going to tell them)
Follow by " 3 things you like. example: do you like sport , music , anything you like to do.
Point 1. You tell them what you like. (sport)
Point 2. You tell them ( personality)
Point 3. You tell them ( dislike)
Make sure you support your point.
Lastly,conclusion . Again, you tell them what you told them.

I hope this make sense. When you follow these steps and you will have essay about yourself. Myself, follow these steps and I get better and better each day. Above, step is from my English/Writing Tutor so I am passing it to you.
Hi Menchie, let's see something you write! I look forward to seeing what you can do. A lot of people improve their skill and make friends here. Welcome to EssayForum! :-)

This makes it easy: Start every paragraph with a TOPIC SENTENCE that tells the IDEA OF THE PARAGRAPH.
Every idea gets a paragraph. Know what I mean? It's easy.

You can have one big theme that you keep referring to, a theme for the whole essay. Express that in the first and past paragraph.

Just make a powerful presentation of yourself. Open up the floodgates of your creativity.

This is a little too simplistic. I think it is too obvious, because anyone could say the same thing. It is better if you get very specific about a goal you have for the future. What do you want to achieve in the world? What are you all about? That is what I think the reader is most interested in.

I'll fix some of the grammar below:
Hi, my name is Frank Strong, and my reason for attending college is a desire to advance my education and become a more productive person. I am not motivated by the desire to make money. It's about the wonderful career I would be getting out of this -- to make my life better, to be able to accomplish what life has to offer me.

hi Menchie,I suggest you to give a very good starting and a good ending to your essay.....in between you can always fill in something about yourself using the suggestions given by others,hope this helps
