Through the past two semesters, I have obtained many skills that will be useful to further my educational career, but there are skills that I, nevertheless, must improve on.
Dr. Seuss once stated that the more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you’ll learn, the more places you’ll go.

Allowing us to become a part of a world of so much emotion and as we grew up, we relied on these books to give some kind of relief and hope.
So far, my life has been full of change. I was born in, India, and moved around for many of the early years of my life. I went from, Toronto, Dayton, Cincinnati, Wheaton, and finally, Elk Grove Village, in a six-year span of my life.

It made for a very unusual and turbulent childhood, but I was lucky enough to never doubt I had the love and support of my family. I did learn a lot from textbooks, and there were certainly a few teachers along the way who inspired me and helped me understand new concepts. But it was my parents who made me want to investigate, taught me how to look at the world with a critical eye and form conclusions. It was in trying to keep up with them that I found myself rushing toward developmental milestones like learning to read, learning a second language, forming opinions of my own.

Mine was reading, I knew when I was younger that reading a book when I was going through something always help, it seemed like I was in a new world. Finally, even though they were all first generation students they still knew from the very beginning that they would graduate college.
