In this essay, for English, I am going to be writing about major turning points in my life. This is a big deal, because these are the kind of stories that will go into a good autobiography. This is a difficult topic for me, because I can only think of a couple major turning points. Anyway, let’s get into it and see how this turns out.
The first major turning point in my life would have to be when I went to LaVilla School of the Arts. This was a big deal for me, because it told me that I am good enough to go to a school specific for arts. (Arts= Dancing, Acting, Singing, etc.). I felt very good because I went for Acting, and many of the actors were really good. Anyway, LaVilla was a good place for me to start to develop my acting ability. I say this because, I got into my first play there. Also, it was my first lead role. That made me pretty confident that I was at least kind of good. From then on, I was sure that I would do my best whether I got the part or not.
The second major turning point in my life, was the switch to Homeschooling. My dad had said that he was considering it when I was in 6th grade, but he didn’t switch us until my 8th grade year. It was really in 7th grade that my dad decided that it was time to switch to Homeschooling. At the time, I thought that homeschooling was going to suck. However, now that I am in my second year of homeschool, I realize that it was one of the best decisions ever made. Being homeschooled gives me more freedom, two of the things that it enables me to do are plays and guitar lessons. These are important to me, because they both allow me to bump up my skill so that I am good enough to earn money for my talent and skill. That will become money in my pocket and bank account to fund my calling.
The third major turning point in my life thus far, was my part in To Kill a Mockingbird at Theatre Jacksonville. Theatre Jacksonville is a community theatre where you can start your career, or end it. This is a great place for me to get into the world, and start my journey to my calling. It is important, because it allows me to start my career and get to know some people. If you live in Florida and can get to the San Marco area, please come see us!

Another major turning point, was my first job. I got this job while doing To Kill Mockingbird. The job is basically to help train doctors on how to communicate with adolescents suffering from Depression. It is so vitally important that we get this right, because if doctors can’t communicate effectively with the teens, the teen could die. This is something that all of us are working hard to stop from happening. Also, a lot of the kids are probably doing it because it pays $15 an hour.
In conclusion, I have a lot of turning points in my life. However, these are the major ones that could be a really big thing for me in the future. For example, To Kill a Mockingbird could lead to bigger shows and those shows could go into movies and TV shows… However, I digress. The point is, these are important for me and could give somebody insight to my life before I got famous (If I do manage to become famous.) Please like and subscribe for more from Homeschooled Hero!
