For the past few months, I have gone through what almost every senior in high school around the world has been going through. The dreaded yet exciting college process. I am pretty sure that lately every single conversation I’ve had with someone has revolved around college. And although it has been overwhelming and scary, one of the best parts about the process has been my personal essay. Of course it wasn’t at first. I spent the entire summer trying to figure out what to write about. I think I rewrote it about three to four times, but in the end I wrote about food. The thing that started my journey with writing and what led to the creation of this blog. And although I haven’t posted as much in high school and have moved on to different writing genres this blog created the foundation for where I am today and I felt that my personal essay was an ode to what this blog gave me. I have attached it below for everyone who wants to read it to see how impactful food and this blog has been on shaping who I am today. Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog throughout the years and supported me in this journey!
My name is Jordan. I am a 12th grader and I love food!
