Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to reflect on a position. At 2 pages, you will need at least 500 words. I suggest using this simple outline:

Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best with your studies.
