When I first moved to the United States as a kindergartner, I was incredibly behind in my reading level. This meant I spent quite a bit of time in my elementary school library with my incredibly patient and kind teacher Mrs.Hutchinson. My teacher truly nurtured my love for reading and turned the shy, kindergartner who was terrified of books into a bookworm.
From Mary Pope Osbourne's Magic Tree House to Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, novels have changed my life. They've affected my perspective, my knowledge, my values, and made me who I am today. Though I don't have as much free time to read as I did when I was younger, it's still one of my favorite pastimes and I do it as often as I can.
