Hello, I'm Jared Gandelot. I am from Cardington. I ran cross country and track all through high school. This past track season I started as a distance runner but ended the season as a sprinter and the best long jumper. In other words our team wasn't that great. Joking aside, running has played a big role in my life and has made me in to the young man I am today. I was also involved in the Cardington FFA. During my involvement I showed animals at the fair, attended state convention and traveled to Orlando, FL and Chicago, IL. My fun fact is that my favorite place to go on vacation to is "The Windy City", Chicago. I have been there three times and each time I had a uniquely wonderful experience.
In chapter one of The Call to Write we learn how writing as well as reading can change peoples lives for the better. In the excerpt from Narrative of the Life of Fredrick Douglass we learn how reading and writing can be freeing not only in a metaphoric since but also a literal one. It allowed him to learn much more than Mr. Auld wanted him to learn. Writing gave him incite into the world around him that he wouldn't have learned any other way. Through the chapter we learn how writing allows you to define yourself and better understand the world around you.
