2) How effective is the first paragraph at getting the reader’s attention? Will it make them want to read more? The first paragraph is effective because it will make readers want to read more about me and what I do in my life. The second paragraph gets into more detail because it tells the readers what goes on next in the life of Jessica. It will make readers want to read more if they want to find out what I want in my life and what I should be doing.

Some community colleges are very easy to get into once you fill out the things that need to be done.

There should not be anyone that could take this very hard to follow because I had no locations of anywhere because I have not decided where to go yet.

Yes, because I am talking about the same person and how my life is going. It is still the same person as the rest of the essay hence, personal essay. It could possibly be improved by writing more detailed about myself but...
