Describe a circumstance, obstacle or conflict in your life, and the skills and resources you used to resolve it. Did it change you? If so, how?
I feel inspired
College didn't remotely seem like an option I could have with grades like mine. The most straightforward way to describe myself my first half through high school is gawky and klutzy. At no time felt comfortable in my own skin. Every day stress on how I think I may seem to others. But the most incomparable turning point in my life is when I chose to pull myself up and renounced acting like a victim.
Dealing with insecurity and social anxiety growing up was the most difficult things I've dealt with personally. If I could help even one other person blossom into their true selves, I think I may have paid back the investment made in me.
In the past few years, I'd like to think I've made a full transition inside and out. In the beginning I may have progressed at a crawl but I am currently at a full sprint towards my future.
In complete honesty, all my insecurity was self-inflicted but holding myself down for so long has made me so grateful for everything I used to think was impossibility to become reality. Instead of putting decent effort, I feel inspired, I want to flourish, I want to do my best.
I'm not completed with the essay but how does what I have so far sound? Thanks for any advice!
