Here’s my examples.

1st Person

Sighing, I slammed the History book back into my locker. Only one more class to go. I grabbed my math book and swung the locker door shut just as my best friend, Carly, bounded over with a huge grin on her face. Her grin made me smile back. “Hey, what’s up?” I asked, curious.

2nd Person

Sighing, you slammed the History book back into your locker. Only one more class to go. You grabbed your math book and swung the locker door shut just as your best friend, Carly, bounded over with a huge grin on her face. Her grin made you smile back. “Hey, what’s up?” you asked, curious.

3rd Person Limited

Sighing, Jen slammed the History book back into her locker. Only one more class to go. She grabbed her math book and swung the locker door shut just as her best friend, Carly, bounded over with a huge grin on her face. Her grin made Jen smile back. “Hey, what’s up?” she asked, curious.

3rd Person Omniscient

Sighing, Jen slammed the History book back into her locker. Only one more class to go. Jen was glad the day was almost over. She grabbed her math book and swung the locker door shut just as her best friend, Carly, bounded over with a huge grin on her face. Carly was excited because her crush had just asked her out. Her grin made Jen smile back. “Hey, what’s up?” she asked, curious.

How did you do?
