My life has changed a lot ever since I met my best friend. She made me who I am today. The first time I met her, I never would’ve guessed we were going to be best friends. I met her two years ago. My family had just moved into our new house, out in Twin lake. A few days after we moved in, I was outside and this girl came walking down the road with a bunch of little kids.
