A major hardship I have overcome in life is being hit in the face by things. When I got run over by a golf cart, a pipe raked across my face and I almost lost my left eye. I then had to be air lifted off the big island to a hospital. Then a couple of years ago, me and my friends were using baking soda and vinegar and put both in a bottle to make a baking soda and vinegar rocket. When it exploded, it flew straight at my face and into my left eye. I felt my face and the first thing I yelled was “Oh my God, there’s a dent in my face!” The funny thing was that the gatorade symbol was on the bottom of the bottle, so for a few days I had the gatorade symbol imprinted onto my left eyelid. I then found out that some part of my eye was bleeding just a little, so I had to lay off sports for a week. Overall, I overcame both of these things and moved on with life.
