My Greatest Strength

My Greatest Strength

I think my greatest strength is my willingness to try new things.  I am always afraid of missing out on things; whether it be not going to a movie with my friends or a brand new experience, something I have never done. 

The photo I chose was taken in the South of France.  My summer before year of high school, i chose to live with a hot family in St. Laurent du Var.  It was absolutely terrifying.  I knew none of the other kids on my trip, I was not confident in my french speaking abilities, and I had never been away from home for that long.  About a week in, once I had gotten to know the kids on my trip and adjusted to the time change, I felt really good.  I had such fun!  The South of France was beautiful.  My friends were great.  My French family was so loving and welcoming.  It was amazing.

My point is if I had not been willing to go out of my comfort zone and try new things I would have never gone to the South of France.  I experienced a completely differnet way of life, met a bunch of amazing people, and had an incredible five weeks.  I'm glad I tried something new and uncomfortable, because in the end it was an amazing experience.
