When I was 12 years old, I joined my school’s English Drama Club because I was afraid of public speaking and had really low self-esteem. Over time I grew more confident and outspoken.
When I was 16 years old, I joined my JC’s Rock Climbing Team because I was afraid of heights. I wish I can say that I am no longer afraid of heights but I still am. However, I did learn how to manage my fears better and how to push through despite my anxiety.
