Throughout my life, I have experienced many challenges. However, there are different levels of challenges. A challenge could be something as simple as making a decision. It could be also accepting a total change to one’s way of life. When one leaves their country and home for somewhere new, hopes are often high about where one is going. But moving into a different culture and surrounding is a challenge to any person who faces it. I faced this challenge myself, moving away from home to try to finish my education. Nothing would ever prepare me for the choice I had to make. In fact, to be a mother of three children and be responsible for them, and study hard also is challenging to me; besides I am in a new country, a new culture, and new people. On the other hand, having this challenges in my life has helped me to contribute to who I am as an individual, a mother, and a student. My life experience has taught me to make better decisions, embrace new challenges in my path, and contribute positive methods to ensure success in my life. Finally, without challenges, life would be trite and boring. I believe that if I dream it I can achieve it. Some people have always told me “what does not kill you makes you stronger”, and I have taken that saying and learned from it.
