When I was in Grade 7 at Willows Elementary in Oak Bay, Victoria, I returned after a week from being home with the flu to discover a Geography assignment on statistics was due the next day. Having missed the lesson plan on Statistics, I wasn't quite sure on how to take this data and analyze it. In my attempt to cover my ass, I turned it into a Creative Writing piece that began with alliteration. I didn't even know what alliteration was at the time, but it earned me the top grade and my paper was read to the entire class.
 
In that moment I realized I might have a future career that involved writing.
