My Greatest Accomplishment
My Greatest Accomplishment

Four years ago, I decided to write a book about my life. I worked very hard for those four years. When I was 12 years old I was staying at my Aunt Cherie and Uncle Rick's house in Hudson, Ohio for vacation. While I was visiting I wrote a paper on how I was feeling. It was a sad paper because at that time, I hated going to school. I didn't know it, but my Uncle Rick saved that paper in his briefcase until the day he retired. A year after I wrote the first letter, I wrote another letter but this time it was a happy letter. My uncle carried this letter in his briefcase as well. My Uncle Rick pushed me to write this book because he had a lot of faith in me. All my hard work paid off because I got my book published and I had a book signing party. My next goal is to be on the Ellen DeGeneres show. I know it will happen for me because I have faith. We are people just like you. We go through the same things in life. We also have life's ups and downs. We even make mistakes. We are human.
