This is my first My Turn. Just like two months ago, it was my first time ever writing a newspaper article. This is the first November in more than 16 years I haven’t been in school, and for the first time last week I went to a dentist who didn’t also know the inside of every one of my family member’s mouths.
Because of all these firsts I feel it is needless to say I am young. I am not ashamed to say I am young, nor am I ashamed that this is my first time doing a lot of things.
