As a child I got bullied often. I had felt very self conscious as a child. I feel better about myself now that I am older. I am very comfortable in my own skin and I don’t just focus on me all of the time. I know helping friends and family is something I will always try to do. I also plan on applying to do volunteer work with NJ Library for the Blind in Ewing, NJ. I want to volunteer to read there and be recorded. I hope I can also publish children’s books. After I work on the assignment I am working on I have a final assignment that is a manuscript for a children’s book. I have a few ideas already for a narrative nonfiction book about my youth with a mental illness called Selling Chocolate but the assignment I am working on for the next week is called MAMA’S LITTLE HELPER a fictional children’s book idea.
