I have grown as a writer throughout my life. At first, I did not enjoy writing because I felt that I was limited to only certain topics that English classes decided. Even though they did not interest me, they did gradually make me better. But I felt no passion in my work in middle school. However, high school opened writing to me as a place to discover my interests and express myself. Social studies classes throughout high school began to show my interest in the histories and politics of our world. This combined with the many papers in United States history and comparative government were my Junior and Senior year English teachers who allowed me to purse my interests in literature and writing. Today, I am enjoying writing more.
