Who Am I?
“Who am I?
Can somebody tell me who am I? I look up in the mirror, look at the
reflection of myself, and wonder who I really am. This is a question that I should ask myself
every day. It is a question that helps me to evaluate my life, and what it means to me. I am just a
typical teenager about to begin a life in the 21st century. I was born and raised in Jakarta,
Indonesia. I grew up in a normal sized house with a mother, father, and two siblings; one
younger sister and one youngest brother. However, who I really am? What have I contributed to
this lovely earth? I go back to my previous question and realize that nobody can answer that
question because, of course, nobody knows me better than myself.
Everyone knows that people
can change, and I have been changing too. I used to be a talkative person until my father
announced that I had to move to the United States. Since that day, I have been changing a lot.
Two years ago when I was in my home country, Indonesia, I used to be a passionate and
talkative person. I always wanted to get know more people to enhance my communication skill.
Every time I saw someone, I tried to start the conversation.
I began the conversation by saying
the standard greeting, like “hi, how are you?”. I did this because I knew that one of the most
important communication skills is speaking.
To be a good speaker I must be able to convey
ideas clearly and briefly. I must also have a clear and pleasant tone to my voice. I also tried
another way to be a good communicator; I joined to the communication club in my school every
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
In this club, I learned a lot about how to deal with the others, how
to communicate with the right way, how to use a proper language, and some other nice things. .
