Superpower Scholarship by Grayson Juel

Updated: Feb 18, 2022

"Which superhero or villain would you want to change places with for a day and why?"

I have always been scared of heights, yet I’ve constantly dreamed of being able to fly. Strange, right? Feeling the wind blow through my whole body is something that I will never experience from the ground. Even if I fly in an airplane, it just feels like a super-fast car at the end of the day. Flying myself, on the other hand, would make me feel weightless. Spreading my arms like turbo-powered wings as they cut through every particle of air would be magical.

I could use my flight to escape the treacherous world. If I fly high enough in the sky, all of my stressors will go away. My shoulders could lift so far from the gravitational pull; nothing could hold me down.

I am free.

In life, I have always wanted that feeling; I want to be so high that my fears are gone. The world that made me feel so small would be minuscule from up there. I could leave my past behind and start a new life in the clouds and feel free of what’s holding me down. If I could trade places with Superman, I’d be able to have that feeling. Then, I could fly.
