How I Chose My Subject
I chose to write about Simone because I was encouraged by her resilience and determination to always listen to her conscience. As I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I find my conscience important too and seeing the example of Simone, undergoing hard times, helps me to not only strengthen my faith but helps me to see the benefits of following my conscience.
