Narrative

This tree is important to me because it reminds me of the Christmas tree my grandparents always had set up at their house during the holidays. I pass this tree almost every day walking to class and it is a nice, constant reminder of home. This tree reminds me to slow down and breathe and remember why I am going to college, for my family back home. It puts the college experience in perspective, which gives me more motivation to keep working and learning.
