Personal essay

It’s the perfect opportunity - my Christmas wish - to extract myself from this never-ending show that my life is, conducted by stiff social rules and restraints and become the master of it. Oscar Wilde once said “Life imitates art more than art imitates life”. So, here I am, taking pains in transforming the spectator I am into the main actor who presents herself in order to achieve more. Who am I? At the first glance, just the average, dreamy 10th grader, struggling to find her calling through an intricate web of choices that life is. I came to the world on 25th of December, 1996, in a family of young, hardworking doctors, in Balti, Republic of Moldova. Striving for a better existence, we moved to Romania in the 2000s, and were thrilled to be greeted by the welcoming community of the closely-knit town Viseu de Sus, in the hilly north of the country. During my stay there, I attended skiing/snowboarding lessons, and also first discovered my unyielding passion for reading. Hardly had I turned 10, when I was told by my parents we would move to Zalau, a slightly bigger city, for financial reasons. Having the typical juvenile mindset, I took it as a grim tragedy, even though now I perceive it as one of the most important chapters that shaped me into an open-minded, mature character.

Usually, when I set a goal, I summon all my intellectual wealth in order I achieve it,while juggling my other tasks in the meantime.

I could say that I have grown impressively mature over the latter years, as I have been challanged with quite numerous problems in both my educational and personal life. On the other hand, I have been incredibly blessed to have a trully heartfelt and genuine individual by my side, who over the past 3 years has made me feel accomplished and serene, as if we would be able to surpass any arising obstacle together. He has honestly been my head pillar and cornerstone, and I am delighted to say that I would have never reached the point I am currently at without his tremendous support. I find it impossible to write down everything about myself, since I am still in the stage where I Continuously explore my strengths and weaknesses. While writing is my cup of tea - as is Drawing, despite I am not particularly skilled in the latter-, reading is my biggest passion.
