How to be Brave by Starsis Essay about what it means to be brave. I talk about my experience with panic attacks, and focus on the particular experience of having one while hiking up a mountain in Italy for a class trip. This is a very personal essay, one that I'm very proud of both because of how it turned out and because of what I went through. It's non-fiction, obviously, and was written for class.
