Best high school Accomplishment With my bestfriend Juana

epiphany

I'm in my 7th period class, trying hard to stay awake while Mrs. Puryear talks about economics when there is a knock at the door. I'm relieved that we have a distraction, and am surprised to see Mrs. Patrick with our 7th grade letters that we wrote to ourselves. She starts passing them out to my classmates, and when I receive mine I'm in shock. I immediately open it and start reading.

I laugh every now and then as I scan the page because a lot has changed since then. However, when I read my last paragraph, I am surprised. My last paragraph consists of what I want to be in the future. I am no longer aware of Mrs. Puryear trying to teach me about money. Instead, my mind is wandering off as I start to realize how much I have accomplished in 6 years.

As a 12 year old, I wrote that I wanted to be a cosmetologist. Now, I am 18 years old, and I have passed my written exam. I am only 3 days away from taking my practical test to become a licensed cosmetologist.  I am about to graduate in less than a week from an amazing school feeling accomplished because I made my wish come true. Words can not describe how blessed I feel to have walked the halls of Mount Vernon High School or to be sitting right here in Mrs. Puryears desk.
