My defining moment was when I cut my hair for Cancer last summer. My hair was down to my hips and I hated it a lot but was too scared to cut it, as I’ve always had long hair. But one day I came across a girl who had no hair, and had no complaints about it, as she couldn’t do anything about it. I then realized that I was taking my hair for granted, when some people who wanted hair, could not grow it at all. I finally made the decision to cut my hair to cancer, so I could make someone happier with my hair then I ever would have been. I’ve always had long hair so it was a scary experience, but I cut 10 inches of my hair and donated it to the Canadian Cancer society. I took my hair for granted, and realized I shouldn’t be as some people have it a lot worse than I do. I noticed that I was taking advantage of my hair when I could be donating it to a better cause where they would appreciate my hair better then I would. This defined who I am because it taught me not to take things for granted, and to think about others before making a decision.
