"I waited a very long time for this chance, and I have no intention of wasting it."

I've lived most of my life in an identity crisis because I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was raised to always want to please my parents, and as a result of that, I always thought of them, and never myself, in any decision that I had tried to make, even if it didn't work out. I was down on my luck after I attempted to go to university fresh out of grade 11. I was exposed to freedom I wasn't ready for. But I decided to take matters into my own hands once I made the decision to become a writer.

With the encouragement of my friends, and others who have read my casual writing online, I decided to take the plunge and dive headfirst into SNHU's creative writing program. It's always been my dream, and it is truly what I believe to be my God-given talent. So I grabbed the ball and ran with it. Here I am now as a sophomore and a published writer who writes articles for many different Web sites and transcribes on call. This is all before I graduate. So I can just imagine the doors that will open for me in the future with having the degree. The most important thing I've learned thus far in my life is to never stop trying and never give up on your dreams, because you never know if you'll get the chance at getting a shot at that dream. I waited a very long time for this chance, and I have no intention of wasting it.
