My love began – I would say in school – reading, writing, arithmetic.  Writing was always a challenge to me because I had to learn how to write a sentence.

Example – I’m glad we’re here today – Instead of – I am glad we are here today. It’s the wording of the statement and the flow of the words.

Writing has given me the opportunity to send a card – to send a text – write to a parent.

Writing caused me to have a sense of confidence in my experiences that I can write about with a desire to write more and more –

Writing gives me a sense of pride that I can write.

Thankful that I was given the chance to learn how to write, to go to school – to communicate with my brothers and sister, my friends at Holy Apostles NYC, whom I admire and appreciate and honor to have the opportunity for expression.
