As I sat there for two days, I wondered what the house was going to look like, what the neighbors would be like, and how the schools were. I never had to think of these things before. Two days later, my parents came and picked me up. On the way to my new home, my parents explained that it was not like the house we previously lived in. That statement scared me because I did not want to live in a smaller house nor did I want to share a room with either of my sisters.
All these chapters in my life have made the person of who i am today. Of course it had it's up's and downs to get here and more up and downs to look forward in life. But boy do you learn so much of it just to get where you really want to be and show everyone how you become this person everyone doubted about. I’d like to start from what I remember when i was a young little girl who never knew had a half sister, I always thought I was an only child. Until I went to Mexico for vacations and I met her and my grandmas house, she was very beautiful and so different from by looks and personality.
Moments later, I wake up. As I begin to sit up, I look down at the comforters and around the room. This is my room. Not my room at my Uncle and Aunt’s house, but my room. The one in Beverly Hills that I thought I left behind when my parents died.
It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster going up and down. Some say that life is filled with obstacles and experiences that will help us pave the path to our own successes. But is that really accurate? There are some points in life when I’ve felt that I would never conquer a problem. From trying to learn to walk, to making big decisions that would affect the outcome of life.
I am not afraid of much, I am more afraid of failure more than anything else. I am not scared of success itself, but I am afraid of what I will have to go through to be able to become successful. Every restriction I face and overcome have made me who I am today, and I would not change anything that has happened in my life. If I did not have to overcome the restrictions I face, I do not believe that I would be the same person that I am
I never thought this would have happened. Why did my life have to turn this way? Those were the thoughts in my head when I found out my parents were going to get a divorce. Why did it have to happen to me? I was a cheerful, ten year old boy who never fretted about anything until that point in my life.
I thought that everything would be over and that I would still be best friends with my friends when high school ended. We even planned us moving to California together and just live life. Then it hit me, how am I going to live in a really nice place or have a decent job if I cannot even get an A in any class. I reflected my life and realized that it was not good. The way that I was going I was not going to get anywhere in life.
I try to live life with purpose and challenge myself to do so, even at the cost of becoming nothing at all in the end. Another example of this is in my own life in my freshman year of highschool. I didn’t know how to play basketball, or even dribble, yet I still tried out for the girls basketball team. I knew I wanted to compete, and to challenge myself, no matter what the cost. With ups and downs I made the basketball team and achieved my goal.
The grueling schedule and difficulties of living in a totally strange place exhausted me in every minute and second. After a tiring day, when I got home, covering myself in the blanket, all I could do were shedding tears and feeling powerless. There were some moments, I desired to return home and apologize my parents for this ebullience. But that was what I chose, and I would face it fearlessly to show my parents that I could accomplish
Challenges There are some things in life that cheer you up and some things that don’t, but we all have to face the challenges that come. From the events that have happened to me so far, I’ve learned that life can be challenging sometimes, but that is if you know how to overcome them. When I was ten years old, I was living in my hometown Monterey Park, where I lived with my mom, dad, brother, and step-brother. Recently starting fifth grade with my two best friends Stephanie and Victoria. All my life I’ve been known as the shy girl or the quietest person in class.
