I never told another girl I wanted to be with her, but I understood his overwhelming amount of courage at a young age to express the feelings he had towards another human being. If I had to create a story of myself, I would incorporate more people to gather different perspectives; however, I would keep the effective light cues.

Initially, this class was a nightmare due to the academic expectations and amount of assignments. I often doubted in my own ability to succeed in the class.
