My first time driving I was really nervous. My dad and I were on our way back home from the store when he suddenly stopped driving and got out of his gray Ford Ranger. He went to my side and told me to drive; I got on the driver seat and just sat there for five minutes pouring sweat. All I saw and heard were cars blazing next to me, when I finally had the courage to drive I was moving super slow. After a couple of minutes I started to get the hang of, it all came to me naturally. This was the beginning of my fascination for driving. This has turned me into a very competitive person. When I’m with my friends we will always argue about who has the fastest and best automobile.

He would talk to me for a couple of minutes and before ending the call he would always tell me to behave because someday I would get to meet him.
