The most important part of writing an introduction on narrative essays is to hook your reader from the beginning.

This enables your audience to know where or what direction you’re going to. Just be sure you have a right source for your statistic.
a. 1 out of 10 people in this country will die of cancer. You don’t want to be the “1”.
Though these are not the complete list of introduction for essays, these will give you an idea on how to make a great one.
Have fun and be creative on making your own.
