This storyboard does not have a description.
I became what I am today July 26th 2016. I jumped off the stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas. This is how i got over my fear of heights. When it comes to remembering the past, remembering this moment, it brings me pride to know that I did it. I chose this verb because I had wanted to do this for a long time and when I'm able to think I did it, I feel proud of myself.
I remember the precise moment that I knew I was really going to jump. Then I realized I was doing this for myself. Just to get over a fear I had since I was 11. Heights.
I had been around to many different hotels that day, seeing colors and lights I had never seen before. Decorations, fountain shows, and light shows around every corner. But it wasn't any of the ground attractions that caught my eye. It was the Stratosphere. A large tower I knew you could jump off of. That's when I knew that I could get over my fear of heights.
So I went up to the top knowing if I backed out, I just blew $155. With that I made it a goal not to back out. I stood on the edge of the platform, scared out of my mind of course, but bringing peace to myself by looking at the colors and flashing lights on the buildings below. The second I jumped I could hear the wind whooshing past me and I had never felt that free. Even so, I felt the ground getting closer as I neared the bottom and it seemed as if I wasn't going to stop.
I was impacted by this afterward by learning it doesn't matter who you are, you won't go through life without fear. However, as long as you face that fear someday, you'll feel like a better person, whether you succeed or not.
