As young people, we are often been asked to elaborate on our future plans, our academic attainments and our interests.
Although these questions are asked in an effort to encourage young people to purue their passions, I feel that instead, they instill unrelenting feelings of inadequacy within young people and because we live in a society that seemingly values academic excellence at the expense of virutous traits such as compassion and creativity, otherwise talented teens throughout the UK are deemed unemployable and (on a fundamental level) inferior, to those that are gifted in acclaimed subjects such as Maths or English.
As for myself, I know that I shall fail my GCSEs. However, I refuse to let educational restrictments hinder my future success. I plan to ignore those that judge me based on my current qualifications and instead learn from my mistakes and channel my energy into something worthwhile.
So I pose this question - what past mistakes have lead to your successes?

Failing my GCSE's thought not telling anyone about my OCD (I mistakenly didn't tell anyone and now I'm a wreck!) has now got me an apprenticeship.
