In college, I was just beginning to learn what it meant to take full responsibility of ones own life and future. I have made a lot of mistakes. However, that has never stopped me a day in my life. While in college, I worked as Freelance Computer Technician and Computer Modeler/Builder for eight years, tutored hundreds of students free of charge for eight years, and doing research about ten hours a week. After graduation, I took my first full time job in Japan as an English teacher. The reason for this was because I wanted to feel my independence but in the most extreme fashion imaginable. In Japan, I didnt know the language, the people, where I was going, and what to do there. In under four months, I learned Japanese and was able to talk fluidly and in under nine months I achieved fluency.
I bring this up, because in Japan, I explored myself and the world in order to get a better understanding of how to learn and how I learn. Not only that, but what it takes to adapt to a civilization and lifestyle that you have not been accustomed to. This is important because in order for you to have change, you have to make the uncomfortable choices in life.
This experience afforded me the possibility to change and genuinely understand the world around me. I understand that there is much I still have to learn, but it has equipped me with skills that I would not have found using the normal route. For this I will forever be grateful and I wouldnt change a thing. My mistakes have led me to be the person that I am. I will never deny them or hide. You will have nothing less than my complete being.
