Stage 1; Infancy (0-1.5 years) Trust vs. Mistrust: In this panel, you see my parents holding me. This shows that I could trust my parents to love and care for me when I was a baby (still do).
Stage 2; Toddler (1.5-3.5 years) Autonomy vs. Doubt Here you can observe me learning to walk. My parents encouraged and cheered me on so that I wouldn't doubt my abilities.
Stage 3; Preschool (3.5-6 years) Initiative vs. Guilt This is my mom and I baking. When I was young I always wanted to learn how to bake. At first, I was not very good, which frustrated me. I then worked hard and persevered and it got more and more easy. I can now bake all sweets, including creme brulee, custard tarts, various cookies and cakes, and my personal favourite: pie.
Stage 4; School-age (6-12 years) Industry vs. Inferiority: When I was 5, I started learning the piano. At school, everyone was bragging about their art classes and sports clubs, so to fit in, my parents enrolled me in piano classes. I finally felt like I was just as great as everyone else, if not better, raising my self-confidence level.
Stage 5; Adolescence (11-18 years) Identity vs. Role Confusion: At the beginning of grade 9, I was unsure of the people that I wanted around me. This made me unsure of the person I wanted to be, based on the bad friend choices I had. I eventually found people that really understood me, and I finally feel like I am on the right path again.
