- It all started in Mrs. Luana’s Little Learners Academy when Mrs. Luana believed that I was babbling too much during class and put me in time out. This small, insignificant point in my life transformed me into the rule following, overachiever I am today. It helped me to become the eighteen-year-old that is going to graduate from seminary, high school, and college in May 2017. While following the rules kept me out of trouble, it did not always help me academically. My second grade teacher told me that “if you did not know the word, skip it.” This incident helped me to become the fifth grade student who could only read at a first grade level....

- I have terrible vision. It 's been that way since I was young. The saddest part of it all is that I thought that this is how the world must be for everyone right. blurry, smudged balls of things and stuff. I still remember the feeling in my heart when I got glasses. It 's like I was never fully experiencing life, and for the first 12 years of it I was missing out on everything. Every minute detail of the world entranced me. That is the same exact way I feel with art. I have taken art for almost every year of high school, and I have enjoyed every moment, through failed pieces, won awards and the community which develops from it....

They say change is good. You have to find the best in change. It is almost like finding the positives even in the worst of any situation.
