An experience I had that falls under that category was the moment I moved out of my parents’ house and into my own apartment. What made this moment important was after many years of wanting to live on my own, I finally got the ideal opportunity to experience living independently. I knew that life on my own was going to be completely different, but I wasn’t going to let anything stop me.


I am part of the program known as College Living Experience, which is showing me important parts to independent living, including paying bills, cooking, attending important appointments, managing my time, and so on. In the present, this skill is helping me reduce my dependence on others, one piece at a time. I hope that as time goes on, I’ll eventually reach the point where I can do absolutely everything all by myself.


If it continues to affect me in the future, I hope I can expand my goals of independence to such a degree, that I might be able to start my own business and expand on it. Independence is an important part of my life, and the day I first got it will be an experience that I will never forget at any point in my life.
