These past four years, from my freshmen year until now, I struggled with school. I go to class, I do my homework and everything, but seems like everything is not right. During my sophomore year, it was better being in the classroom working hard on doing my work, and my grades began getting better and better. In my junior year it was hard with testing and there was a lot on my plate Being on my best behavior was very hard. I was stressed, and everything just blew up my mind. My senior year was the hardest one. I did my best just to come to school every day and do my best just to make up my credits. I feel like I was in a hole but soon I felt like I was out.

Now I am happy to be the person who I am. I am thankful for myself for the hard work I have accomplished. I am thankful to all my teachers for pushing and pushing me to work hard for my future. They have told me to work hard and prove to others that I can do it. The moment I finished talking to my counselor one day. I walked out of the door crying. I didn’t really know what to say or what to do but to thank everyone for the help, and to thank my teachers for their hard work. I know graduation is the most important thing for everyone and including the family, and I can’t wait for that day to come.
