My Life (Kind of)

One of my first memories that I can remember is from when I was about 5. I ran around my backyard as fast as I could with my arms out pretending I was an airplane. I imagined that I was flying high above the sky all the way to Disney World. Although it may not have been the most adventurous destination, that dream still stays with me: traveling. I love the idea of being able to go somewhere, explore the area and meet new people, and then come back home to share stories and experiences with my friends and family.

Music That Moves Me

A song that inspires me is “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus. Not only is it a major throwback to her Hannah Montana days and an extremely inspirational anthem, but it is also an anecdote to when I was young and the song that motivated me to learn how to play guitar. When I was little, one of my favorite shows was Hannah Montana. I felt like I could relate to her because I loved to sing. Whenever I listen to Miley Cyrus’s old music, I can’t help but feel a little sentimental. The main reason why this song is so important to me is because it was what made me want to learn guitar. Music has always been a huge part of me, so the fact that this is what started my love for guitar, and later ukulele, is amazing.

People Who Inspire Me

The Mount Prospect Public Library staff has created and grown my love for reading since I was little.

My friends and family have always been there to encourage and support me. They are the motivation and courage behind everything I do.

About a year ago I read Life in Motion, Misty Copeland’s autobiography. It has inspired me to believe that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible.
