The Impact on my Life
Through all my experiences, whether it be a traumatic one, or even a great one. All have made me into the person I am today.

But also my parents had candles lit on their dressers next to where my brother and I were jumping. Next thing you know we keep jumping closer and closer to this candle, and my brothers all cotton clothes catch fire. All of a sudden my brother starts screaming because he’s on fire. And I do the same but I shout like never before to my sister, who came sprinting up the stairs and got my brother in a tub filled with cold water. Then I’m told to call 911 and get them here.

Since that day, not only have I strived to do best in life and be a good person, but my sister has too. Because in a blink of an eye, you or a loved one can be gone forever. The event caused such an outbreak, or like a slap in the face to me at 4 years of age that I need to try do everything with a stellar performance, and without that tragic event I would be a totally different person today.
