I have grown my intellect throughout my twenty-one years a couple of different ways. Some examples are:
- Learning from parents
- Learning from guardians
From a young age my parents made some poor decisions. Over the years this lead me to reflect and gain knowledge about things I do not want to be or do.
Then when looking up to my guardians in later years, I had learned everyday tasks. Balancing life, learning rules, chores, etc. I had a functional family to look up to and set an example for me.
Throughout elementary, high school, and college, I have been growing my intellect by reading. I used to love reading fictional books. Every once in awhile getting caught up in a non-fictional history story. And in college I sometimes have literature circles in my classes.
Journaling has been a skill I have used on and off since a young age. I use this to write down how I’m feeling, how my day went, my goals, my plans to reach goals, etc.
So far, all throughout my life I have been actively furthering my education through academic classes. I have a liberal arts background.
