No one can deny that I am a daredevil. I haven't always been this way, so my parents are surprised themselves to tell me that I've become so bold and independent in the last couple years of my life. They say that it all started when I picked up the microphone at the age of 12.
I was a shy boy who had no interest in singing, but the church band was in need of new members. After a little nudge, I began singing in front of a huge crowd- and I became hooked. Singing made me feel like I was the Luke Skywalker of Star Wars. I decided from then on that if I was going to sing, I would be the best singer in Ontario. Through self-motivation, I started to spend countless hours in my bedroom learning how to sing through YouTube. Each and every week, the stage of my church presented a new opportunity to show how much I had improved.
Naturally, I was voted to be the leader of the band after I entered high school. The instrumentalists who also became my best friends had automatically understood that I would be the perfect person to coordinate practices and songs because of the passion and experience that I had for performing. I lead my band to this day to perform in front of one hundred people weekly, and I love the fact that I inspire kids that were once just like me.
