The problem was... now I had to stand on stage, in front of the ENTIRE school going against other winners. The day came and I was feeling extra nervous. When asked to spell "Myself" I ended up spelling
"M-y-s-e-f". . .
I remember walking off stage, completely bummed out, thinking "But I know how to spell it!"
As I was feeling terrible and beating myself up about the silly mistake, my mom ran up to me and told me how proud she was of me and that I succeeded. I was so confused at first...
