Every essay or assignment you write must begin with an introduction. It might be helpful to think of the introduction as an inverted pyramid. In such a pyramid, you begin by presenting a broad introduction to the topic and end by making a more focused point about that topic in your thesis statement.
Similarly, in an essay, the introduction acts as a roadmap and sets the tone for the content of the rest of the essay. As we pointed out earlier that there isn’t a set way to start an essay. But the one thing you need to be mindful of is that your introduction is catchy as well as informative.
