The story of my life begins from my childhood when I was born in a family that belonged to the middle-class society. My past is a simple book that revolved around me and my brother who is younger than me. My father belonged to a military background and from the very beginning, I saw him in an army dress. It was in my childhood that I developed some interest in military operations. My parents belonged to two different backgrounds. My father was of African descent whereas my mother was Hispanic. We lived together as a happy family without facing any sort of family problems.
My childhood was a simple one and I only remember specific events that used to take place almost daily in my life. Visiting church was a tradition for our family and I accompanied my parents to the church every Sunday. My father loved fishing and every now and then he took me on a trip to fishing with him. Altogether I grabbed the skills of fishing through my father who was an excellent fisher. As my father belonged to a military background we had to go through many reshuffles in our settlement. We moved through countries after countries because of my father’s transfer in the military. It was through these trips that I was able to learn about different cultures. I grasped the skills of diversity and how to handle different situations with different people. My brother at that time did not get along with me well and hence we ended up fighting each other in most instances. However gradually with time, we have realized each other’s worth and we love each other to date.
Belonging to a middle-class family of this sort I never realized the importance of education. If I strived for education at the right moment I could have achieved a better job than I am currently working at. Plato described education in the following strong words “If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life” (Freccero & Jacoff 1986) While working in the military I still ponder on the words of Plato and wonder if I could rewind my life. As I did not pay much heed to studies in life I coped up with the burden of life by adapting to different jobs. In order to cope up with my financial crisis, I first worked as a waiter in a fast-food restaurant. The experience was not something to be proud of as all day it required work with much less respect in return. The job did not have many returns and I finally decided to leave it to find a better future. It was here that I looked forward to driving for a company that had trucks. The trucks were used for transportation and I became a driver in that company. I used to drive trucks all day long and transport the required products at specific destinations. The experience of being a truck driver was not really bad but it again was not a much-respected profession. It was here that I decided to quit the company and struggle for the goals that I had crafted during my childhood. I pursued a career in the military and finally, I was able to achieve a post in the military like my father. I worked hard for it and was able to achieve my goal of working in the military. I plan to work in the military until I finally get retired to set up a personal business for my family. From my childhood, I had a keen interest in many activities which helped to shape my life. First of all, as my father used to take me to fish every Sunday I developed an interest in fishing and to date I love fishing. .
