Please Proof Read My Essay!?

It is my birthday and I am too tired to try and write an amazing essay in the first draft, so please help revise this!! :) All About Me My name is Emily, and here is my story. I was born in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Sedona, Arizona. I lived there for the first two years of my life with my mom and my sister. We were very happy living there, but my mom wanted to go back to Indiana to be near her family, so we picked up everything and left. Indiana is where I grew up essentially, and where my whole life took place. I lived there from the time I was two up until the summer before I went into the seventh grade. I never knew anything different, until now. My mom, my adopted dad and I ended up moving to San Antonio due to economical circumstances. The economy is somehow infinitely worse there than it is here, but I am surprisingly alright with that. If our situation wasn’t bad, I would not be the same person I am today. The reason for this is the difference between living in San Antonio, Texas and a tiny town in the Midwest. One of the things that I noticed is very different about San Antonio is the value of education. School was almost a disciplinary act in Marion, or so it seemed. The value in education was practically nonexistent. The grading system was substandard, and the teachers didn’t really believe any of their students could do anything with their lives, let alone make a difference in the world or the lives of others. Going to school in San Antonio has given me all of the values and strengths I have to date, and for that I am eternally grateful. The day I started the seventh grade here in San Antonio, I could see the difference in values and morals. I had never even known there was a world where people valued individual qualities and differences. The same day I made this miraculous discovery, I met the best friend I have ever had. We are practically sisters, and get compared as such. It was definitely nice to have that connection since I had to leave my family behind for this new life. Ashley has showed me the type of person I can be, and I appreciate that every day of my life. Just by moving to such an immaculate city, I have become a person who has the power of the world in her hands. I have always been the type of person to put others before me and to empathize with them when they are in need; it has always been part of my nature. I am the “giving type,” as people like to say. The difference in my personality now is that I am much more outgoing, and I have a way to put these powers to use. I know that I have them, and I embrace them to their full extent. One of the biggest projects I’ve picked up while I’ve been in high school has also had a major effect on the type of person I am today. The Clark Student Council dedicates all it has to changing the world, and making it a better place. I’ve picked up a lot of the weight of Student Council as a whole, as I am our Community Service chairperson. While it is the most work I have ever had to partake in throughout my life, even more so than my part-time job, it is the most rewarding experience. If anyone is involved in our Student Council at all, they know how strong of a leadership role and commitment it is. This group of people is the most responsible of pulling me out of my shell in order to help me to help others. As if being enrolled in school full time, working a part-time job, and being very involved in Student Council isn’t enough, I am also very active in other Clark activities. Some of the bigger ones are the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, New Global Citizens, and Clark Student Ambassadors, or CSA’s. As a student ambassador, I have committed my entire year to teaching a class of freshmen four days a week. I participated in this last year as well, and love helping our freshmen get acquainted and involved in creating the amazing school they thrive in daily. It is a lot of work making lesson plans and actually taking control of this class, but I absolutely adore the kids in it and we have created lasting friendships. One of the greatest rewards is seeing the effect of my work come out in front of your very eyes. My high school experience as a whole has in turn shaped my entire future in the most major way possible. The outcome of me teaching freshman, and now elementary-aged kids, and even my peers at school has made me come to realize what I want to do with my life, and that is to teach. Being in Early Childhood Professions will hopefully be the extra step of finding out exactly what grade fits me. At this point I hope to become a special education teacher, and this class is giving me a head start to make my decision before I go into college for my Masters degree. It is helping me put into effect all the hard work I’ve done up until now, and without it I would be lost.
