Born the ninth out of ten children, I was raised with eight sisters and one brother. Our family lives in a modest home situated in the middle of hay, corn, and wheat fields. We have a little farm yard including cats, dogs, horses, and the occasional beef cow. Having come from such a humble background, I learned how to work hard from a very young age. Most of my fondest memories include activities with my family. I remember how my older sisters would turn our chores into a game. Each of us would pick a character to be. Sometimes it was a character from a movie, or other times we would just make one up. Then we had to talk and do our chores in the same way the character we picked would. All of the sudden, something that was a hassle turned into a big game and a time to make fond memories. My home was also a place where creativity and imagination could blossom. When all ten of the kids where at home, finances where a little tight. We had plenty for the things we needed, but not everything we wanted. If we wanted to watch something, we watched a movie because we didn't have TV. Usually, my sisters and I would just spend hours and hours riding our bikes around the back roads in the fields, pretending that we were on some grand adventure. Or, we would play dress-up and make our own plays to perform for the rest of the family. We also spent hours drawing, painting, and making some little craft at the kitchen table. If we didn't have exactly the thing that we needed, we learned to improvise. These skills have continued to benefit me as I have left home and entered school and the work place. When I make a commitment, I work hard to follow through. If ever I am faced with a task that is hard or tedious, I look for creative ways to accomplish it and make it more enjoyable. I welcome a challenge and am not afraid to try new things.
