Experiences have the power to shape us into the humans we are to become. Without  them, the time we spend would be meaningless. After eighteen years of experiencing life, certain moments are relived frequently, as often as a dog­eared page is looked back upon. Dancing,  show choir, and donating blood have been those experiences in my life, shaping me into the  woman I have become. These experiences have benefited my life in multiple ways, creating my  persona and making me a better person. At 4:00 sharp, every Monday evening, a slew of three­year­old girls bolt into the studio,  where they all smother me with hugs and deafening shrieks of joy. We all hold hands, make a  circle, and sit down to have a talk before we start dance class. Since my eighth grade year of  school, these girls and others have become like my own children. As an eighth grader, I was  quiet, timid, and hated being in crowds. Now, I take charge of classes, laugh with the kids, and  can talk to them with no problem. These girls have taught me how to better lead and teach  gently. I have been blessed with the privilege to see young girls blossom into graceful young  women. Because of the many classes I have been able to teach, I have become confident,  composed, and useful, never unable to complete a task. My job has been the highlight of my  week for five years and I have benefited greatly from it. Without this experience, it is likely that I would still be unable to help children learn and express themselves effectively. This skill has  changed the outlook of my entire future. Another skill I have developed is time management. Few experiences have the ability to,  in a short period of time, teach a person how to accomplish a task quickly and adequately. Show  choir is one such divergence, often involving months of praying for promptness of fellow  members, running with multiple potentially perilous items, and intricately practicing a single  song until it is the definition of perfection. From dancers to props, everything has a specific,  complicated way of happening. Playing bass guitar for show choir is exactly as difficult as it  sounds. Guitarists must bring their own guitars, stands, amps, and cords, which must be put  together and torn apart under a time limit of five total minutes. Under such a limit, where the  stakes are so high, being in show choir as a bass guitarist has fortified my time management  skills and taught me that I can do anything I set my mind to doing. In six short months, I have  accomplished what some can only dream of. How many people get the chance to learn and  become proficient at an instrument in such a short time? But what’s so special about learning  time management and confidence? As Stephen Chbosky penned in his novel, Perks of Being a  Wallflower, “sometimes people use thought to not participate in life”. The experience of show  choir and all the chaos it brings has been written on my heart forever and will consistently  encourage me to try new things and be involved. Being involved in the community can also take the form of giving back. Less than 10%  of eligible blood donors actually donate blood each year (American Red Cross). The statistics are spread frighteningly far apart, with a lack of donors and an excess of people in need of blood.  For this reason, I have been inspired to give blood and also encourage others to do so. This  includes helping with my school’s yearly blood drive with National Honor Society. Saving lives  is imperative. Over the course of the past two years, I have given blood as often as possible,  often bringing friends and family to donate as well. These affairs have not only changed the lives of others, but mine as well, involving my diet, water intake, and exercise to keep my body  healthy. Giving blood keeps me involved in my community and saves lives as well. I can’t think  of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than donating the blood and plasma that my bones  worked so diligently to create. The experiences in my life have molded me into a passionate, giving, gentle person. I am  proud to have been involved in my community so much throughout my high school career.  Teaching dance, participating in show choir, and donating blood have created in me a bold spirit, ready to confront any obstacles in my path. I have been made into a kind, compassionate, and at  times, low in iron, woman. These influential landmarks in my life will continue to encourage me  to be the best person I can be.
