My Terry Letter Story
It was the Monday after my interview right before my softball team was about to leave school for an out of town game. I was sitting on the bus and decided to peak at my email just to see if I had received an email from the foundation. I held my breath as the screen loaded.
When I saw an email that said Terry Interview Results I quickly covered my phone screen. I opened it without looking at the screen after a few deep breaths I uncovered the first line of the email. After a few seconds of being awestruck at the word "Congratulations" I jumped off the bus and called my mom. She couldn't understand me at first because I was crying, but when she finally put the pieces together she started screaming and crying into the phone with me. Because I was crying in the parking lot my softball coaches and brother thought something was wrong, but once I told them what had happened they all hugged me and the softball team erupted in cheers. It was a moment of pure happiness.
