For those of you who don't know, I have created a 30-day challenge for myself. I will be posting an answer every day for the month of September to let my fantastic followers, and anyone else who is interested, know a little bit more about me! #WhiChallenge

Here's a link to my original article of all the questions I will be answering-

I have two announcements to make before I begin.
First, I am sorry this article is going up a little late. It was a busy day with hardly any time at home where my laptop is. That being said, this one still counts for September 9th and I will be posting another one later today for September 10th.
Secondly, I am all for others doing this challenge as well. By all means, go ham! However, I would deeply, greatly appreciate receiving credit for creating this concept and all the questions. I won't be mad if you don't but, again, I would greatly appreciate the credit. There was some confusion that these ideas came from the WHI Editor which is untrue. But, anyway, again, I am not mad. It's all cool, just a note for the future. Thanks! Enjoy.

  • 9. List 5 people who have had an impact on your life and describe how.

1) Mom & Dad

My parents have impacted my life in many ways. They have lead by example in their marriage and raising my siblings and me, giving me a great example to aspire to be like. They have encouraged me to try new things, accept others, have good values, and make the most out of life. As I have said in my "My Parents" article (link below), they have supported me, loved me, cared for me, and raised me with all the love and nurture that I could ever need. I truly believe they have set me up for the best future possible.

2) Lil Sis

My little sister has Down Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes the person to be born with an extra chromosome (Trisomy 21). She faces many challenges in her day-to-day life. However, through her difficulties, she has shown me how to be happy even in the hard times, focus on the positive and those who support you, and not let anything keep you from your goals. Love you Lil sis!

3) Writing Teacher

As some of you may know from my "It's My Passion" article (linked below), I love writing. Whether it's free writing, writing prompts, essays for school (yes really), or articles, I simply love expressing myself through words typed on a screen or written on paper. My writing teacher has given me the tools necessary to convey my thoughts and feelings in a coherent and intellectual way. I have had the same writing teacher for 4 years now. She truly inspires me to continue writing for myself.

4) Aerial silks Instructor

Aerial Silks is a great passion of mine. It's excellent exercise that is fun, challenging both mentally and physically, and a great bonding activity with those in your class. I have been in aerial silks for over a year and a half. My silks instructor has been with me on my journey, from fundamentals to intermediate one, the whole way. She encourages me to challenge myself and push myself to be the best aerialist I can be.

5) Ex-Best Friend

When reading the question, list 5 people who have had an impact on your life, I realized that an impact can be a positive thing from a negative experience. That being said, the experience with my ex-best friend was a positive experience that turned negative but overall had a good impact on my life. Through the situation, I have learned to trust myself more, believe in myself, love myself, and reevaluate what was important in my life. It was a very tough experience, but one that ultimately helped change me to be a better person.
