My name is Cassandra Duncan. I grew up an only child. I was also an only grandchild on both sides. The youngest of all my cousins and the only child in a small neighborhood that consisted of a bunch of adults, I never really learned what it meant to just be a kid. And I certainly never learned how to relate to other children.
Accustomed to being around primarily adults, I was always mature for my age. Even my own friends often annoyed me during my adolescent years. I had a lot of people who invested in me, and I excelled at most of my many and varied hobbies. I did well in school, often knowing how to do complex math problems before the concept had even been introduced to our class. Looking back, I’m sure I was quite smug, although I didn’t realize it at the time. Unfortunately, self-awareness wasn’t something I learned until many years later.
In high school, I began to tire of the pressure placed on me by my family and their high expectations. I gradually stopped my extra-curricular activities, including music and art lessons, and chose to work instead. I graduated at the top of my class, although I wasn’t valedictorian—perhaps because I didn’t want to give my overbearing family the satisfaction. And then I chose a large public university a lot farther from home than the small private college my parents hoped I’d attend. I wanted to be a small fish in a big pond for a change.
In college, I was involved in few outside activities. I did pledge a sorority and even served as its president, but only after several of my sisters convinced me I’d be great at it. After a handful of jobs that paid the bills right out of college, I finally went to work for a large investment firm. There I continued the trend of just meeting my potential, only taking on new challenges when someone brought it to my attention that I’d be perfect for the opportunity.
I was never one who saw myself with a family. Not wanting to be tied down by the constraints of a husband and kids, I always assumed I’d never marry. But then I met Don in 2010 and agreed to marry him after so many of my friends and family pointed out what a great couple we made. Our son was born just over a year later. And before I knew what had happened, this externally motivated, single-for-life, independent career woman was a stay-at-home mom.
I’m proud to say this new role suits me. I’m driven, not to do great things for myself, but to spur my son on to even greater ones. I still don’t know how to relate to children in general, but I know how to distinguish between the slightest little nuances of my son’s tired cry and his hungry cry. I still don’t know how to be a kid, but I’m hoping he’ll teach me. Despite a lifetime of often falling short of my own true potential, I’ve always held on to a quote by the writer James Baldwin: “The world is before you, and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in.” That always sounded like something I wanted to do. I just never knew how. The moment my son entered the world, I knew I had achieved it.

I think it is helpful for clear concept
another example of My Autobiography
I was born on a fine day in February in Palompon, Leyte. I still live in this town and I go to school at Palompon Institute of Technology. I live with my family, my mother and father; and my brother Angelo. My two elder brothers are now based in Cebu for a greener Pasteur. The second elder brother is already married with a cute daughter.
Who I am in life?
My name is Fretz Suralta. I started school when I was five-years old. I went to a nursery school in our place and moved to PACCI in kinder 1 however I didn’t get through the process. I skipped kinder 2 and joined with the graders. I spent first grade through sixth grade at Palompon South Central School and while I was there, I got the chance to be a servant leader to my fellow students. With the grace of God, I graduated with honors. My parents and brothers were so proud with that achievement. Then I attended Palompon Institute of Technology. I am now a freshman student. I plan to continue my vocation to be a servant leader as an officer in the Supreme Student Council.
What life means to me?
Life to me means friends and family who you can trust and who trust you. I am handsome much on the happy side of life, but like all teens I do I have my "days of." That means I do have some sad days or depressed days. I have a few friends that sort of look out for me and when I am having a bad day. I make my school days go by thinking of either the next hour or what I will do when I get home or on the weekend. I also have a family who is always willing to support me no matter what.
What's my outlook on the future?
The year 2018 will make twenty years since I graduated from high school. I think, I will probably someone who is ready to face the challenges of a digital world. I will have a job that deals with computer. I will make programs, software and anything about computer that will surely make a difference in the world. I will make my own family but I’ll enjoy first my being single.
