The of my life can be described as an ever-evolving journey. It is full of unexpected turns, lessons and experiences that shape who I am today. As I look back on my life, each decade has been full of unique memories that have contributed to the person I’ve become. From childhood through college and into adulthood, every period has left its mark in a special way.
My childhood was a time of discovery and growth. I enjoyed playing with friends outside, exploring new places, learning about the world around me and discovering who I am becoming. This period shaped my innocence and creativity as well as my foundation for future relationships.
Moving into high school marked an important transition — one where academics and extracurriculars began to take priority. I was still discovering my personality and defining what kind of person I wanted to be. My teachers and peers helped me hone my interests and career aspirations, which eventually led me to college.
College was full of new experiences and opportunities. I learned a great deal about myself as well as the world around me. Through classes, internships and jobs, I sharpened the skills that would help me in future careers. The people I met during this time made an impact on me — from friends who are now family to mentors who provided guidance for long-term success.
As an adult, my life has taken on a whole new meaning. It is filled with responsibilities such as a job, family, and a home. I’ve been able to use some of the lessons learned from my childhood to navigate through life. Despite its difficult start, I am grateful for all that has happened as it has shaped me into the person I am today.
