You Are Your Experiences
By Hrithik Choudhary
You are the result of all of your experiences. All of people you've met, the places you've lived, the things you've done. Every second of your life has led up to who you are right now. These are some of the things that have shaped me. What are you doing now that will shape you?
The best books are the ones that make a difference in your life. Being fortunate enough to live in a place where I can read what I want, I have read some of these. I enjoy reading fantasy novels because anything can happen in them, but one of the most powerful books I have read is a memoir. It is Night, by Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor. The book tells his story of his life from being forced into a concentration camp until his escape. It is very powerful and really made me think differently about life.
Family & Friends
You are always around your family, so those people have a big impact on you. Your family cares for you and teaches you what is best. My parents have always done that for me and I am grateful for it. My friends are also a big part of my life. I have a great time with them and we are there for one another.
School is a big part of every young person’s life, and I am no exception. I have always gone to a school that had good values and opportunities. I have been able to learn more about the world that I live in and that has made me a better citizen of it. Having great teachers has also led me to value knowledge and character.
I have always been involved in music, either listening to it or learning it. Music brings out your emotions and can help you realize how you really feel. It is always great to listen to music lose yourself in the beat. I also enjoy making music. I play saxophone in band, and I always feel so excited the first time we play a song.
Just like any other kid, I have a great time playing videogames and watching movies. I have an Xbox and spend a lot of time on the internet. We are always surrounded by technology and it has changed our lives. We have become more connected, but possibly shallower. We can now work better than before and be more entertained. Technology can be good and bad, but I feel that it is important to continue advancement.
