Honestly, entering this competition was major step outside of my comfort zone, but I knew that it was needed. I woke up everyday excited engage with the app and trying find a scripture that I can some how tie into my piece. It was hard. Most days the motivation just simply wasn't there and I even felt like giving up. I felt stuck, like I was not good enough, so I prayed for insight everyday. But as time flew by i became anxious, I could not allow this opportunity pass me by. I had to at least give it a shot. So I pushed and I pushed until I felt that my work reflected God's message.
I believe that my work blended superbly with the topic of the contest. I thoroughly enjoyed writing and working on the piece despite the emotional roller-coaster I would have experienced. My work definitely reflected who I am, as I was able to reference some political and psychological terminology while simultaneously making a relevant reference to the scripture and I am quite proud of that accomplishment.
