What is important to you? And why?
The thing that's most important to me is the relationship that I have with my friends and family. When I was younger I had trouble making friends, but no matter how lonely I was I knew that I could always come home to my supportive family. My family has always been supportive of my dreams, they've always driven me to rehearsals, taken me to see shows, and sat in the front row during my performances. As I got older, I started making friends and although some of them have come and gone throughout the years, my best friends and I always managed to stay close. We ended up going to different schools, and over time our lives started to go down different paths due to our individual interests, but no matter what we always made our friendship a priority.
From always going to each others sporting events and performances, to late nights watching movies or helping each other with math homework, the friendship that we've had is something that's extremely important to me. Growing up with such amazing friends and family has taught me the importance of letting the people you care about most know how important they are to you. The relationships I have with my friends and family are the most important thing in my life because they've helped shape me into who I am today, taught me how important it is to follow your passions, and most importantly, how to be someone that others can count on.
