A good writer rewrites and revises his or her work many, many times. After getting a first draft on paper, take a day or two away from the essay and then come back to it with fresh eyes. Make appropriate edits for content, and pay attention to proper spelling and grammar. If need be, you might want to write an entirely new draft and then integrate the best of both into a final draft. Writing a new draft can inspire you to think of new ideas or a better way to tell your story. Some other tips to think about as you rewrite and revise:
Good leaders who successfully adopt their thinking and behavior in different circumstances have gone through a learning process before attaining such skills in leadership. I see myself as a conscientious person with decision-making skills as well as innovative skills and having varied techniques for motivation. Such skills were not innate.

However, students who have no cash may not develop such skills due to limited chances to gain more experience. Therefore, obtaining scholarship provides better opportunity to expand career and expertise on leadership.
