I was asked to write an essay for “This I Believe.” I decided to write my essay on what I have grown up to believe. While growing up my dad would always make fun of me because I was a little over weight. I am built like my dad. I always believed that because that is what I was told. When your little your intend to listen to your parents. Then later on I found that people are all build different ways.
