My first defining moment in history goes back as far as I was a little girl. This one is when my mom first introduced me to arts and crafts. I 'm more than glad that this happened because not only am I naturally good at art today but it has shaped me into the person I am today. I 've become very creative and since I had speech delay as I was growing up, I spoke through my pencil and paper, which is art and it 's so fascinating to me. I 've learnt to be at my best, and "drew out" my feelings so I could express myself in some way. If it weren 't for my mom to introduce art to me, then I don 't think I would have learnt to communicate any sooner. I wrote about this moment because I lived a long time of my life not knowing how to communicate …show more content…
Before I lived a very different type of lifestyle in elementary school where everything seemed consistent and not having to jump over major obstacles as I have when I started middle school. Everyone told me, "You 'll be great," and "Just do what you always do." That 's the strange part because I didn 't expect to go through so many changes at all once. For the most part, I didn 't enjoy middle school too much, but I did learn one very important trait that I never had; to be strong and to have my voice for things that are wrong to me. I 've faced so many incidents in middle school where I had come to a point where these problems became impossible to handle. However, the moment I actually stood up, and took action for what was making me uncomfortable, things had become better faster than I thought it would. Unfortunately, it couldn 't fix most of the issues, but it did help me become stronger mentally.

I 'll never forget how it felt to take on a huge responsibility and actually get an award for it. For some odd reason I was given the biggest speech to memorize for the ceremony, and it was also related to a fight j and with my leadership group’s teacher. It happened due to me not being responsible enough to hand in something on time and it puzzled me a lot as I was about to leave the group in anger. I chose to stay, and that was probably the hardest, and at the same time best decision I 've ever made. It was the hardest because I enjoyed what I do as a leader since I 'm naturally good at it but I didn 't want to be with people who made me feel upset. It 's the best decision because this choice has given me a big surprise on graduation day. After a very polite and respectable speech, my teacher had actually chosen me to get the award for "Leadership of the Year" when I least expected it. At first I was very confused about how she would 've chosen me out of all the other leaders she liked, and afterwards she told me it be chase I chose to stay and I proved myself that one mistake will not decide who I am. From that day, I 've learned that mistakes will help you and to learn from them will make you who you are every day. I chose this moment because I learned to never give up on my passion because it 's better to try than to give up on all your efforts, and to continue is always the better
