Why do we write a Persuasive Essays?
We write persuasive essays for so many different reasons. We write them because it could change their opinion or to teach others. Or maybe make a claim about your opinion.

It was the first real affordable computer ever, like Henry Ford and what he did with the automobile industry.
In 1985, Jobs was awarded the National Technology Medal by President Ronald Regan. During an Apple meeting, Jobs disagreed about one of the board’s decisions, and he got fired. Then he started a company called NeXT which failed. After that, he went back to Apple where he originally started. Steve Jobs was making so much money he was able to by Pixar Animation Studios.
