I chose this word for two reasons. The first being, that the Harry Potter series will forever be important to me. The books were a big part of my childhood, and I always felt like I could relate my life’s ups and downs to those of the characters. The series was an escape, and I’ll always be grateful. The second reason I chose this word is because it symbolizes a lot about myself. I feel like there’s so much uncertainty in my life right now, and so many things I don’t know in life, in general, but despite this, I still keep searching for answers. I have an irresistible desire to know. I let this light guide me through all uncertainties in life because “happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
