Other people find themselves to love reading and writing as a child and they grow out of it, becoming more involved with sports and social outings. Whatever the feelings a person has about reading and writing as a whole and how it pertains to their life as an adult—reading and writing had some sort of impact on everybody at some point in their life.

In the fourth or fifth grade, I remember reading, writing, and grammar becoming a competition in the classroom. Coming from a family with ten older first cousins, competition was something I always loved. However, in class when every assignment I did in English turned into a competition on who could read the most books or who could get a 100% on every reading comprehension quiz, I began to dislike the logistical literacy learning.

I had succeed in public speaking skills because the teachers made us present all the time. I learned that I did not mind speaking in front of people and made me discover my passion at becoming a future lawyer and politician. For example, in civics class we learned about the government and had political debates, which I learned that I loved to argue with people. Also, with meeting new people I became more open minded to certain ideas that I would have not ever thought of, or spoken about because the school I was from had more conservative views on life. I had found my voice in a school that believed in respecting others point of views and finding ways to find a common understanding.
Jose agreed with my mom in saying that I’m not open to others opinions. He said that I deliberately refuse to accept that I’m not completely right about something, in a way that is not helpful to other people and annoys them. Hugo said my weakness is I have no filter.
