Autobiographical Essay My name is Lyric and I was born August 25, 1992 in Los Angeles, CA. As a child, I was always optimistic and rarely let anyone or anything ruin my day. I enjoyed the small things in life, including trips to the park, going outside with friends, and anything else a young child would like doing. In elementary school I did exceptionally well in academics. I always got honor roll and enrolled into the gifted program.

I even tried out for an all-star team and I am now captain after only three years of being on the team. At a very young age I also discovered my love and fascination for animals. I would always watch Animal Planet and wished every animal in the world was my pet. Some of the pets I wanted were not even domesticated animals, but my young mind did not care. I then came to…

very first auto show in New York City in 1900, the automobile fascinated the American people. Over the next few years, hundreds of companies would try to meet the demands of the growing market. Since the practicality of automobiles was limited because of unsuitable roads, the government passed the Federal Aid Road Act of 1916 and the Federal Highway Act of 1921. Thanks to these Acts, by 1924 the U.S. had over 31,000 miles of paved roads, which made for easier transportation.
