Who are you?

At the beginning of the school year, many teachers require students to do an activity that allows them to explain who they are as a person. I usually say that I am outgoing, friendly and smart. These are very simple ways of describing myself but there is much more to me than that. I am seventeen years old but I feel as if I am thirty. The events that have occured in my life have required me to mature a lot faster that my peers. My mom died when I was thirteen and a new student in the Worthington School District. Although it was very very tramatic time in my life, I do not want you to feel bad for me or pitty me. I have learned so much about life and I am still so young. I have gained the best of friends from switching schools and I am so thankful I did. When my parents first told my siblings and I that we would be transfering to Worthington  Schools I was not very happy. I had gone to the same school for seven years and it was a very hard move for me. However, I made friends at my new school quickly and I seem to fit right in.
Now that you have some of my background I can begin to describe myself as a person. I am definelty an extrovert. I  love making new friends and talking to new people. Of course I enjoy alone time but with four other siblings, I don't get much of it. I am outgoing and funny. I usually end up laughing at my own jokes but I don't really care. I am really sarcastic too. Sometimes it can be a bad thing when people don't understand my sense of humor but they usually catch on. I am athletic, I love to run. I run cross country and track and field. My friends sometimes say I am like a mother to my younger siblings which is true but I love being with them. They are the loves my my life. I love enjoying life and trying to be a positive person. I have high expectations for myself in the future however I am not in any rush to get there. I love being a teenager and experiencing high school life. I hope you were able to learn a little about me through this piece of writing.
