My Greatest Accomplishment

Good Essays
Have you ever achieved a goal of yours that has made you feel overwhelmingly proud of yourself? I have accomplished that in my life by graduating high school and receiving my Diploma.

Recalling all of my involvements in high school my graduation day led me to believe that it all made me who I am today and it enlightened me greatly. After June 5th I felt I had grown in general as a person and it brought me bliss because it was exactly what I hoped to gain after my occupation as a high school
