How to avoid dense text format for academic writing?

by Dan   Last Updated January 08, 2018 15:23 PM

I am working with my statement purpose for my graduate studies. I found existing solution for the template of SOP. However, I want to apply horizontal and vertical spacing for my essay. So I used the command like \vspace{2mm}, vfill, \hfill, but resulted latex output is still not well desired. I want to all the text have proper vertical spacing between each line, and also small horizontal spacing on each line. How can I get my desired output? How can I make this happen? I am sorry if my question is not well stated. Thank you

desired output:

I want to add double space to the each line horizontally and vertically.

Goal

Make the entire text can be comfortably read for the readers, and avoid dense text formats. I also need indentation for each new paragraph.
