When I was ten years old, I walked into the library and picked up a book. This book was about a character who had magic. The characters in the book were graceful, powerful and unstoppable. They had magic, and they had no limits. I read that book any time I wasn’t doing something else and even when I was supposed to be doing something else.

   Ever since, I’ve loved books about magic and warriors who could do things that others couldn’t; books with characters who refused to limit themselves. That’s what I have learned from Delphian: to never limit myself. I learned that I could be like the warriors in the books I loved.

   I came to Delphian as a scared child who lived in the shadows. At Delphian, I became truly able. I no longer limit myself. I don’t tell myself that I can’t do something, because that’s not true. I learned to challenge myself and to never accept things as they are.
