I have learned so much about writing. Writing is really important and I have developed over time. I struggle with writing. But I have improved. I understand that writing is a social and a rhetorical activity. I do more critical thinking now. Reading has always been challenging for me. You really need to power through the struggles to get better. You have to keep trying and learning and growing.
