What is your most embarrassing moment?
During my first week of high school, I walked in the building and my backpack clip stuck to the fire alarm and pulled it when I walked. I remember thinking “Who is pulling this alarm the first week?”, and as I walked away, by backpack was still stuck to it. The dean’s and the principal all knew my name that first week then.
