My most significant writing encounter occurred due to having discovered the series Berserk. Prior to my reading of Berserk I would regularly present the stories I wrote to my father. He would always give me a smile and say it was good, but I could tell it never captivated him, leaving him with a desire to read more. After reading Berserk I wrote a story which for the first time captivated my father. As usual, I presented him with the story I had wrote and he read it.
Education is an outlet to create better opportunities but most importantly to build on knowledge, career and any sort of higher platform. Education is valued in my household and in my family’s native country, Haiti. Growing up I was forced to read and write every night before going to bed. This was a constant exercise I held on until I started high school. If it were anyone who drilled me into reading and writing it would be my grandfather.
It all began when I was in first grade, but enjoyed reading in third grade. The main type of reading that I like to do is extensive reading during my free time. Reading The Lightning Thief in middle school encapsulated me as an avid reader. The authors of my favorite books are Rick Riordan, James Dashner, Justin Somper, Michael Scott, and Maggie Stiefvater. The types of books that I like to read are science fiction, mystery, action and adventure, and sometimes romance.
