The goal of this project was to explore and become familiar with myself as an individual in order to learn who I had the potential to be as a leader. My hope was to examine the key events, characters, and conversations that have taken place within my narrative and their role on my life and who I am. In other words, I sought to know myself. I accomplished this task by writing a literary memoir. I think there is a slight but important distinction between memoir and autobiography. An autobiography is a cut and dry story of who we are. A memoir is how we remember and recall our narrative. I think that's the poetic way to say memory. This project is a collection of my memories that come together to say this is where I came from, what I went through, what I learned, and where I'm going.
