What is your earliest memory? Describe it in detail, and tell us why you think that experience was the one to stick with you.

Playing games with my cousins. From building forts to rolling in a blanket on top of each other to not let the others in. We would hang off the edge of the couch and say don’t let me fall brother and cling on to them for dear life.

How easily I was entertained at this young age amazes me.

The games go on and on from jumping on the bed to playing hide and seek under the mattress. To creating forts with pillows and cushions and sliding down the stair rail.

I must have been around the age of 5 years old since that is the time we have home made videos. These experiences stick with me because I had siblings and relatives to play with and video and picture evidence of my actions.

I am grateful for my upbringing and I would not change it for the world. These simple moments helped define me to be the person I am today.
