Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow. Reading and writing have been a struggle for me since a young age. Even though I still consider it to be one of my weaknesses, I am very pleased with how far I have come. I hope that in the future, I am able to continue my desire for reading and writing to ensure that I am able to better communicate with others that I come in contact with my daily
At times when I read there are words that I don’t quite understand. When this happens I look up the word and see how I could use it. This also goes back to my writing, if I find a word in a book that I have read I can add it to my writing to improve my writing skills. When I see the effect of reading on my knowledge it makes me proud of myself because I used to get teased for always reading, but that didn’t matter to me because , in the end, I knew that reading would help me. All those people that teased me for always reading were probably envious of how much knowledge that I could acquire from just reading one book.
Hello Mr.Rase, my name’s Elena Serafimovski and I’m a writer in my junior year of high school. Writing is extremely comforting to me, I even find it therapeutic. As a young writer, I would write short stories on silly ideas like puppies or flowers because I enjoyed that. As I progressed through middle school, I picked up different styles of writing by reading books from various authors. The more styles of writing that I read, the more I wrote.
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing.

Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
“Writing is a ticket to a professional opportunity”1(Linville). One cannot have any aspirations of a professional career if they do not at least possess the foundational basics of writing. Love it or hate it, writing is more important to everyday life than most might realize and I have come to learn that the necessity of writing skills continue to grow progressively throughout life. Writing skills have represented the most importance for me from kindergarten to college and eventually in work. I have come to learn that school should be used for making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, and mastering skills in order to be best prepared for the professional workforce.
A Learning Experience: Reading and Writing Through most of my adolescent years, reading books and writing my thoughts took patience that I lacked and a desire my mind could not want for. But as the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20. I know now that we are fortunate to have the opportunities to learn to read and write at such a young age. We are willingly and eagerly taught by our families, friends, neighbors, and teachers at school. But I find myself wondering, what about those that were not so lucky?
From a young age, I knew that reading was essential to living, but had been rather discouraged from reading for pleasure, due to the environment in which reading was taught. I was put into lower level reading classes and the expectation was lower than what I knew I was capable of. Reading had become a task that meant little to me until I met my sixth grade teacher, Mr. Bassler. With his influence, reading was something brand new and exciting that was not as enticing before. The challenge that literature posed before was utterly destroyed and I became an entirely different person, the person that I am today, writing about my passion for literature.
Do people really change? Going back to 2014, I was in grade 10 and I just changed schools. In my old school, I was always the excellent student and I was known for my good grades. That’s why I was really upset about changing schools. It was an immense adjustment for me as this was the first time that I transferred to a new school.
