    Ever since I was a little girl, I have always felt this heart aching pain every time I see someone in trouble, feeling down, and etcetera. And I have also felt like a super hero when I am able to make someone happier, even if it is by taking the slightest smile or laugh out of them. Growing up I was not sure why I was like this. A couple of weeks ago, I found out through a strengths assessment in StrengthsQuest that one of my top strengths is empathy. Which makes a lot of sense because I am definitely

    If anyone looked at me they would think I am an ordinary college student. I wake up every morning wishing to get a couple more seconds of sleep. I make my way to school I listen, I learn, I make my way back home and I study, or depending on the day I go to work. Some days are as simple and relaxing as these, but some are not.

    I paced my brother, as he drove his big-boy batman trike. I was riding my Little Tikes trike, one that was not in any fashion intended to keep up with my brother’s brisk, delicate maneuvers; nonetheless, I continued driving right behind him.
