Personal Narrative: My Most Important To Me

Improved Essays
I am not the best at remembering about my childhood, but the events that stick out to me are probably the most important that helped to shape me into the person I am to this day. First of, I took my first steps at about nine months old and my first word was “mama” at six months old. I grew up with four siblings, me being the smallest and, I was distant from my brothers and sister because they were years apart from me. I grew up in a Hispanic household, and my parents were very loving and restrictive. When I entered pre-kinder, I was a very shy child and would not even be able to stand up in front of the class and sing along to the ABC's. Although, I was very shy, I did very well academically. I made two very close friends who actually lived close to me, so we were able to expand our friendship because of …show more content…
I ended up participating in the talent show for the next two years, every year with less people involved, until 5th grade where I participated with only one other friend. This was a marvelous experience to get to know what I liked and what I didn’t. Upon entering middle school, I once again felt like an outsider since four schools merged and now there was a huge amount of new faces. Dependent on my prior friends, it wasn’t as hard for me to approach new people and become friends with them. This was a huge time in my journey to self-identity, because a vast amount of clubs were now available to us. I auditioned for the dance team, without really knowing if I was going to like it. The reason I auditioned was to go with my best friend, and I was really close to skipping the audition. I am glad I did not, since dance became one of my favorite hobbies for the next 3 years of my life. I had the chance to meet a lot of people in the dance group, from camps, and perform in front of so many people. This was the beginning of myself trying something new and artistic. After this experience, I wanted to continue trying new activities so I could decide what I was passionate

The best memory I have with this group of girls is at one of our dance competitions. Our teacher had been really tough all year and we had all worked extremely hard. At our first competition, we were really confident and performed well on the stage.…

    From elementary school, middle school, and part of high school I had always been the kid that was so quiet. Certainly, I was comfortable around my family but being around strangers made me nervous and scared. Throughout my school years, not including high school, I probably only made three friends. As I grew older things started to change and it was not until I landed my first job that I began to be social. Even though I was a shy person throughout most of my life and I had no work experience, my first job led me to discover a personality I never thought I would uncover.…

    Fifth grade was a year where I had three main friends, Jayden, Andrew, and Casey. I don’t have many memories from that year but I do know that we had many laughs hanging out by ourselves, and staying away from the other kids. In sixth grade I had many friend groups. There were only two that I can remember all the people involved. One was when I was friends with Faith, Seth, and Karina, that was just because the teacher sat us together and so we felt like we were kind of forced to.…

    Dance is my passion. For the past fourteen years I have done more than take dance class everyday after school. For the past fourteen years I have immersed myself in the art of dance. I have studied the language, analyzed many different styles of music, and followed the best dancers in the industry. Dance is much more than an after school activity to me or a way to stay in shape.…

    The outgoing seniors were the choreographers for the routines, which was fun working with them. Those three days flew by pretty quickly. Each night, a group of us went over to someone 's house to have dinner and rehearse the dances over, and over, and over again until it was locked in our brains; about as good as remembering our first names. But tryouts had come and that is when it flew straight out of my brain, and I 'm sure everyone else 's, as…

    These friends are similar in age to you and around you most of the time. As you get older your peer groups help influence you more. I was homeschooled from first grade to sixth grade, so I really didn’t have any interaction with my peer groups. Only in the fall and spring when I played soccer, I sometimes felt like the odd one out because I was never kept update on all the new trends and I really didn’t socialize with kids my age very often. Once I hit sixth grade the influence started happening, going into my sixth grade year my style was horrible compared to everyone else’s, I didn’t know how to make friends, and I didn’t have any of the technology that everyone had.…

    I didn 't get along with the other students in my class, but I had learned to accept that things had always come easier to me and that they wouldn 't accept me. But I had always gotten along with my teachers and felt like I could trust them. You see, my school district doesn 't have a middle school, you go kindergarten to sixth grade in the elementary and seventh to graduation in the high school. So I spent half of my education so far with the same people in a class of nineteen students-and I had nobody I fit in with. I had been the outcast all throughout elementary school, the kid who 's always on the edge of the playground - the…

    One of the things I had made as a goal for high school was to make it amazing, and have fond memories when looking back at it. These 4 friends where just the start of combating my struggles and achieving my goals. Because of the class schedule I had, I was unable to be in chorus like I was in seventh and eighth grade. So instead I selected Dramatics 1 to fill the empty bell, and it was a perfect choice in the end. I didn’t audition for the Fall musical “Annie”, because I was both too shy and had already been in the play the previous year.…
