I am writing a formal essay, based on the following prompt
Differing points of view make life interesting.
I am finding it hard to avoid using "our" and "we" in the essay. For example, in the following context:
Humans have a wide range of interests and hobbies; we read different books, play different sports, engage in different conversations, and ultimately posses different convictions.
Diversity is the catalyst for invention and innovation; it is absolutely necessary, and a vital part of the world we live in.
How can I avoid this in my essay? Or, is it fine to leave it that way?
Is it incorrect to use "we" and/or "our" in a formal essay?
