Always a Silver Lining- Maddie

One of the most difficult experiences in my life has been moving to Florida. It has turned out to be a great learning experience and has shaped me to be the person I am today, but at the time, I did not understand. At the age of 12, my family and I moved from St. Louis, Missouri to Weston, Florida for my fathers new job opportunity and to save my parents marriage.

Unfortunately, after months of living in Florida my parents divorced. It was a combination of living in a new state, leaving all of my extended family who I would see every week, to having no one. I had to learn and adjust to a new environment, culture, people, and to being a child of divorce. These experiences have helped me grow in more than one way, they have taught me there is always a silver lining and things do happen for a reason. It is important to learn from all experiences life throws at you.
