Engels Perez: Step-by-Step

Posted at 11:33 AM under Uncategorized

Engels Perez is an average college guy who sits in class and participates and is heavily involved with the Theater Department. He is also a guy who loves to listen to his music in his headphones.

He wasn’t always so involved and engaging. When he was a kid, he was quiet and to himself. He didn’t play outside with the other kids, just stayed inside and played video games.

At school, he was the kid that sat in the back of the class and didn’t talk at all. The evidence was prevalent when an end of the year party at school happened with all of the kids playing around, and he sat by himself, alone.

His mother got concerned about his weird behavior at school. A teacher of his even tried to hold him back a year because he didn’t talk that much. He didn’t talk to people for a long time.

It all changed at the age of 16 when he decided to join theater. He missed the first three, classes but when he finally showed up to class, it made Engels a different person. The theater class acted out a scene of a witch killed. Engels took some boxes, stacked them, and stood on them to yell at the others not to kill the witch.

He was finally able to talk to people. He hasn’t stopped the improvements since that day. He made small steps at the beginning that turned into more substantial steps like a flight of stairs.

    It doesn’t seem like you went with the adjective example I used in class. Unless maybe it’s “changed.” I do like the anecdote, and I can see where it would be central to a story about Engels’ interest in theater, or about his outgoing personality.
