When I was born I was afraid of strangers
When I went to pre-school I was afraid of leaving my parents for the first time
When I started school I was afraid of the new challenges that faced me
When I moved schools I was afraid of making new friends
When I started middle school I was afraid of the big building and the new teachers
When I went to high school I was afraid of my school workload
When I was in matric I was afraid of failing
When I graduated I was afraid of going over seas for a year
When I came back from overseas I was afraid to live in South Africa
When I started at CPUT I was afraid I made the wrong choice
BUT… I went to preschool, I faced those challenges at primary school, I made new friends when I moved to a new school, I adapted to my new teachers and the big middle school building, I managed my high school workload, I passed matric, I had an incredible experience overseas, I settled back in when I came home, I went to CPUT and I graduated!
I think at each stage of our lives we are afraid of certain things and looking back at all the things I was afraid of I can laugh!
