My Winter Break-Personal Narrative

Good Essays
Winter break last year was an experience for me that I will never forget. It is when I found who I was and who my real friends and family were. I went into winter break that year as one person and came out a totally different person. Many people do not know why I changed so dramatically, they questioned a lot. I tried to explain but no one understood. It was a blistering cold winter morning when my mom called me and explained to me that my cousin Leila was going to come over to my house because her parents were at a meeting.
