Will Artificial Intelligence programs change how teenagers write for college?

As a senior about to embark on his college future, I am aware that writing is about to get harder. So I thought I would investigate how well Artificial Intelligence could do the job for me. Will AI help or hurt me at the next level? This is what I found:

AI technology has the potential to revolutionize the way students write, and this could be a major benefit for college-level writing. AI can help provide personalized feedback for students, which can help them to hone their writing skills and make their work more effective. Also, AI can help to reduce the time spent on tedious tasks such as proofreading and editing (which everybody dislikes doing), allowing students to focus more on the creative aspects of writing and having fun in college. 

On the other hand, some worry that AI could take away from people's unique writing styles. AI may provide benefits stated previously, but it won’t be able to capture the creativity and individual voice of each student. Furthermore, AI could create a boring writing style, with all students sounding exactly the same.

Ultimately, it remains to be seen how AI will affect how teenagers write for college. AI offers many potential benefits, but it also carries some risks. It is up to educators and students to make sure that AI is used responsibly and in a way that will help to foster creativity and individuality.

Sounds responsible, right? 

Here's a question for you: Did I write this, was it done by AI, or is it a combination of the two?
