What in life are you the proudest of and why?? |
here is my answer which btw is going to sound weird to you all i'm sure :) but it is really what i'm proud of.
I was born about 12wks early(I was born Jan 20th and my due date was Early APril) I only weighed 2 pounds and growing up I heard how I was not excpected to live, I was given a very low chance of survival. Doctors said if I did live, i'd prob end up blind(Preemies often have problems with their eyes and blindess) mentally handicapped,unable to walk etc.. and I didnt. growing up I heard stories of what a fighter I was and whenever i've had a challenge or felt hopeless I think back to how I was not supposed to be here, and how hard I had to fight just to survive(how hard all preemies fight) and how strong I am, and I feel really proud that I was born early and beat the odds.
I think that's a big reason why i'm so hardworking, independent and stubborn even today.
