    One of the most important things to keep in mind when crafting examples is that you’re allowed to make them up! Remember: you’re not being tested on the facts you know and experiences you’ve had – just on your ability to write a relevant essay. So the rule is this: if you come up with your “why” statements and have an instant, obvious piece of evidence (for example, your “why” is “people are healthier who have more friends” and remember a time when a sick relative moved in with some buddies and healed faster, boom!) – but if not, then you can just make up a relevant fact from “a recent study found,” personal experience, and “a book I read.” Remember: they won’t check the study, your background, or your entire literary history. If you need to prove that nature is good for children, you might write: “A recent study found that children who spend even 15 minutes a day in nature are happier, healthier, and perform better in school.” Is that study real? I don’t know – I made it up. But it’s pretty darn believable, and it ties in exactly to what I’m writing!
