43: According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, the word "debut" is defined as "a formal entrance into society". Two years ago, I made my debut into the adult world - we planned for months, dressed and danced our ways to perfection, and invited guests from all around, just to see our little Xyzing all grown up. As a Filipina, the year I turned 18 was destined to be the most memorable, and indeed it was. There are certain conversations that will stick to your memory bank for life, and the epic Froyo Love conversation with one of my best friends Camille was one for the ages. Being the beginning of both our senior years, we sat down, shared our yummy goodness together, and realized all the things that were in store for the year - AP tests, college applications, graduation, part-time jobs, and both our debuts. The future was somewhat planned for us at that moment, we just had to make it happen. Having my debut was more of my mom's dream for me than my own, yet it is one thing I am forever grateful for. It was the successful accumulation of a large group effort, a reunion of old and new family and friends, and the recognition of a new era in my lofe. Thank you to each and every person that helped plan the event, performed during the program and gave speeches, to those who traveled from so many miles away to make it , and to those who sacrificed time, money and talent just for the event. I can't thank everyone enough for such an amazing memory that I will cherish forever, and one that hopefully you will as well. March 2011
