Hello! Well, my teacher assigned an "Explanatory" essay also known as an "Expository" essay, and these kinds of essays -from what I've been taught- convey someone else's story, giving information like details, and facts about what is difficult to understand. Without us giving any of our " criticism" or "opinion". Meaning we cannot use the first person "I". The thing is that my teacher required us to use an anecdote, and of course, i can't use one without using "I". would i get points taken away if i use "I"?
