Poet E.V. Rogina once wrote, “Like wildflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.” I have changed in so many ways in my almost eighteen years of living, both physically and emotionally. Just like a wildflower, I have grown in ways I didn’t think possible. I have grown through harsh conditions, and everyday I continue to bloom. Before high school, I never knew what to expect.

I’m surrounded by wonderful people that love and support me unconditionally. They better me, and I do the same for them. They are the sunshine that helps me continue to grow. Even now, I know I am not done growing. I know I have so far to go, and I can’t wait for the rest of my journeys. I know I will continue to grow like wildflowers do; to always look for the light and to survive through what others
