I am not the most advanced writer, and I know I have a lot to work on but it did not occur to me that I was not strong and some might say not even adequate at speaking, reading, and writing until everything was revealed abruptly but instantaneously.

I have massive room for improvement and I will eventually be where I desire to be to further my future here at UC
