My Life Changing Moment
I have a twin brother. He has both hands, but I was born with one, my left hand. In addition, at five months old, I lost my hearing and I became deaf. When I was a little boy I often felt lonely, scared, and sad. When I went to school I was afraid to tell people about what happened to my hand and I never explained to anyone. When I was 15 years old, some of my friends knew the truth, but I was afraid no one else would understand how I became this way. I tried to show people my personality so they would see the real me. I had to be patient for a few years before telling them how I felt. I feared people would not like me because I only have one, my left hand.
My good friend knew about my hand, but I didn’t know if she knew about how I felt. She loved me no matter what. She said, “You are a handsome man and I do care about you. You are brave and an inspiration. Also, you stand up for your life.” I am amazed to have her in my life and I loved her for I was not afraid and scared anymore. I was proud of myself. I felt very blessed. I love my life. I have no reason other than GOD made this way in my life, and I know that I have purpose.
Most people think that I am limited because of my hand and deafness and I can’t do anything as they can. However, they are wrong! I believe what my friends told me: that I am brave and I am an inspiration to others. My dream is to go to college and to pursue a career in Architecture. I know it will be hard and I refuse to throw my HAND up in the air. No one stop me.
I would like to study for architecture at Clemson University, because I want to draw house design. My goal is to be Professional Architecture and want to design for houses that keep children safe and house that withstand natural dangers. Also I would like to work for Professional Architecture in Columbia, SC or Virginia.
is it real?
Style is nothing more then what you see and what you experience. I won’t say that mind is original, because those before of have been through my transitions. Some even execute on levels higher then me and I look to them for influence and inspiration. But I will say that I try to be creative with my ideas. I hold my appearance with high regard, but my mind is shaper then my clothes. For a man to be able to express himself through his words, and his coordination develops leaders mentally. The world needs more leaders, not men who can dress nice.
