Since an early age, I knew that I was different. Because a minor hereditary disease caused my capillary blood vessels to extend right under my skin, my hand looked quite different. The influence of the disease to me was mainly emotional as it did not hinder any of my physical abilities. I just had to bear with the staring and the idea that I was different. My friends would not play with me because they joked that I had a terrible contagious disease; In P.E. class, nobody would hold my hands. The feeling of being left out made me become sensitive. Luckily, my very wise mother knew the importance of building my confidence and introduced piano into my life. To prove that my hands were normal, I practiced hard with them. In seven years, I passed the highest level Piano Test. Gaining confidence in the process, I started to open up to others. The many tests and performances on stage fostered my character, too. They taught me to enjoy challenges, stick to my goals and be willing to demonstrate my strengths. As I grew older, I could calmly explain why my hands look different with a smile on my face without feeling ashamed. But this experience enabled me to identify with the weak and underprivileged. Sympathizing with their experiences, I am ready to extend a helping hand. The best way for me to fulfill this wish is through studying law.
