This year I am so grateful that I have become a writer because it has helped me grow, learn about myself, and made me be open to a lot of things in my life. I wanted to write because I have always believed in making a difference in this world. There are so many things in this modern world society that people may not be happy and I may feel the same way but since this world is not perfect there is always writing.
In order to become a writer, you have to put yourself out there and be confident to share your ideas even if you are starting to be one! Writing is a part of my life and de-stresses me. It makes me feel relaxed, open-minded, happy and makes me feel appreciated as well. When I started my writing career in school and to write articles, it was challenging for me in the beginning because I didn't know if my thoughts/ideas were strong enough.
The solution to the challenges I faced as a beginner writer for college assignments and for articles is going to my professor's office hours and to take step by step each day. I did not expect to become a writer, but through this journey, I have loved it. To write means more than putting pretty words on a page; the act of writing is to share a part of your soul with the world. My favorite quote of writing is, "no one can tell your story to tell it yourself. No one can write your story so write it yourself" (Anonymous).
The life of being a writer has its challenges but also has an enjoyment a lot of people like. I feel that there is always something going on in this modern world society and I think it is good to talk about it as well with writing about it. Another reason why I like being a writer is my voice gets heard without any interruptions and distractions. I absolutely love having my voice heard because it makes me feel so appreciated and I have received so many compliments about my writing.
I joined the University of Arizona Odyssey Community to gain more experience and spread the endless possibilities of creativity. It's a way of talking without being interrupted. An example of why people like being a writer too is a woman named Laura Salkin said, "The one thing I love most about writing is getting in the zone" (Huffington Post). You will need the writing skills for so many important things in your life, for example, getting a college degree/grad school, creating your resume/ cover letter, and speaking to companies for future jobs.
If you are ever feeling stressed or want to become a writer, take a pen or pencil with a piece of paper and start writing to share your ideas with the world. We absolutely need more people to make a difference in this world to make the world an even better world even though everything that is surrounded by us is not perfect. I took the opportunity to become a writer to make a difference in this world, now I recommend you to take a chance too!
