I am happy to share that I have had a very unique , special , and unusual educational upbringing , to which I attribute the kind of person I am today . Due to the nature of my father 's job , my family and I always had to move from one place to another . Thus , so far in my lifetime I have attended up to seven schools , which are located in far-flung places ranging from Houston , Texas to as far as
Eket , Nigeria
On the whole I am appreciative of the experiences brought about by my situation . Indeed , as in all kinds of situations , there are advantages and disadvantages to be faced however , I am positive that the advantages I derived from my life 's experiences overweigh the disadvantages greatly
One such advantage I gathered from the experience is that I have been exposed to so many different cultures .

However , upon getting to know me , people get over that initial surprise and see me as an equal and a mature person
Considering the above benefits , news that the family would have to move again is always welcome to me . Such news excites me , as I expect to meet more people and make new friends , even though I am quite sure I would miss my old friends terribly . I also feel excited about learning new things , and how moving can somehow make me feel that I am starting anew and I am given a new lease on life
I am also grateful that my unique position had exposed me to challenges that helped shape me into a better person . Moving from place to place means having to change schools all the time .
