    Read what you’ve printed. If it’s not sinking in try reading it out loud. Sometimes when you ‘hear’ what’s being said it makes more sense.When trying to write it imagine you are telling someone about it. Your more likely to use the words you use, rather than what is said in the text of the article.If there are any words you don’t understand use a dictionary / spell-check. If you can’t find a word you want to use, use a thesaurus. That will give you words that have similar meanings.

    try to find the main idea and rephrase it in your own words using synonyms.

    My advice to you would be to be creative. No, you can’t make things up about the person you are writing about, but you can put it into your own words. For example, you may use a Thesaurus. If you are reading about the person, take a word that the author used, and use the Thesaurus. Then you can mix the words you found into your own essay.Good luck!
