out of the box thinking
I've always wanted to do something untypically. It is much more interesting to think out of the box. However, I was too scared of what others would think and that I would embarrass myself. This dependence on other opinions was making me feel like a pebble: just lies on the ground and looks like other pebbles. I didn't fancy that, but how could I change?
The answer came in a summer camp. That was a new place, full of new people - perfect to set free and express myself. I was a star in any activity we had, trying to add something from me. For example, during a theatrical play, suddenly overly expressive Romeo with a funny Italian accent appears, waving his hands and "accidentally" knocking out Juliet. The audience loved that performance.
Expressing my individuality made my camp life more comfortable, and others - more entertaining. Since then, wherever I'm in, I always try to stand out. For this reason, some people call me strange, but others complimented me as strange but in a good way. I'm fine with that because it is strange, unconventionally thinking people who create innovations and affect the world.P.S. This is an essay for a technical university. I hope I answered the question correctly.
