An Event In Your Life That Changed You

Bates | 3Mariah BatesENGWR 30027 August 2014 TimidA new house, new school, and a completely new atmosphere were ahead of my nine-year-old life.

The other kids were standing around in there cliques and it was obvious that the fifth graders controlled the far left gate on the black top. I remember one girl that stood out. She looked larger than life in my eyes. She was bright skinned, tall and everyone seemed to flock to her. She made me feel small without even knowing her. I was having trouble finding my classroom number on the blacktop where my class was supposed to line up.
