Tell Me About Your Strength!
I have always been curious, and have loved to learn new things and have new experiences. I really love horses and started taking riding lessons. One Saturday morning, I was two hours into my lesson when my horse, Isis, started disobeying my commands. She started galloping across the arena and wouldn't stop.
She bucked, and threw me into a fence.
I couldn't feel anything for a second, then my whole body started to hurt. But I stood back up, brushed off the dirt, and got back on the horse. This experience has taught me about being a risk-taker and not letting my fears overcome me.
