When I came to FMA I was very upset, and I had a very poor attitude about what I could accomplish. After facing lots of adversity, I realized that there is so much more I could be, and I am becoming stronger.
I have so many new wonderful skills, and while not all of them apply to my “regular” life, most of them do, or can. Gaining all these new skills is a great thing because now I am stronger. I can work; I can hike; I can clean properly, and I can do so much more that I will use on a day-to-day basis. Each time I acquire a new skill, I always think how it will apply to my life, and I feel proud.
Acquiring new skills is important in moving forward in my life so I will be a productive person.
