The adversity that I have faced in my life is not something I look down upon. My challenges have pushed me to be the best person I can be and are the root of my success. High school has been an amazing, while also difficult, time for me. It seems like just yesterday I was walking in the doors for my first day of freshman year, unsure what to expect from the new environment. The opportunities that high school offer inspired me to take action and to become involved.
We finally got to Winston-Salem after 2 hours of a long drive. When we pulled up to our new home it was bigger then the last one, I was happy that I moved to Winston, but the only thing was that I didn 't want to go to my new school because I knew no one there and it was going to be very awkward, but when I went the next day it wasn 't that bad, I made new friends so, I wasn 't so lonely. My mom went to work while I was at school. She said that she was glad that she took this job and she doesn 't regret it at all and I was really happy for her.
Despite the adversity I am facing, I still keep on moving forward. I embrace myself for who I am. I may be lacking in experience as a teacher, but given my condition, I am patient and understanding. Together, we can improve so that no one gets left behind.
I could focus more; I wasn't always talking or forgetting something. I was always about my work and that was it. I was on AB Honor Roll the entire year. Each year got better for me. I never knew my life would change drastically at the age of six.

and I was doing well for the first few months. As the assignments got more challenging, my grade seemed to be slowly dropping. It usually dropped .01%, but that was still something. In all honestly, I wasn’t worried as I’d always got by doing the bare minimum. By the time the final rolled around my grade was at a 91.34%.
I like to think of myself as a brave nine-year-old for packing up my trunk and heading into the woods for ten days with my brother when I had never for a prolonged period of time been away from my parents. At Belknap, making friends is one of the easiest things ever. Yet, these friends as the years go on seem to disappear in a whisper. Unfortunately, at camp, you are only allowed to go from age nine to sixteen and after your last summer,
That one hundred minute period where it all began. The way the pixels on the paper came together so well and clear we did too. It was that last class of the day. I looked forward to class just to be with you and because we did absolutely nothing in that class.
Ever since I joined the Boy Scouts at eleven I had always had the goal to become the Senior Patrol Leader, to lead the other Scouts. Last year our SPL had served an unusually long term of eighteen months, and was often jokingly referred to as our “super scout”. But he was turning eighteen and had to give up his position for a person to be elected in. I was the next most experienced Scout and was considered the obvious choice. So I won the vote unanimously.

The National Honors Society has been a constant but distant presence in my life ever since I was in middle school. Every once in awhile, teachers would mention our GPAs and tell us to keep them up if we wanted to be accepted into NHS, or they would attempt to coax us into behaving better by telling us that the National Honors Society frowned upon our current behavior. Back then, NHS was a prospective part of my future, and I didn’t worry too much about preparing. In my first two years of high school, I watched my fellow students in NHS work to keep up their grades up and to meet the volunteer requirements. I watched them and waited my turn to join them, because after learning what the National Honors Society really was and what it stood for,
My parents said they did not want me to fall behind and even talked to my teacher so I could stay after school with her. They were really involved in helping me that I did not feel ashamed. In the end it worked out because they spent excessive amounts of money on tutoring and helping me do homework that I finally got how to divide fractions. Even till this day I am not good at math but I am not ashamed to ask for help and have my parents sit down and do homework with me since my dad is good at math. My parents really encouraged me in school to come and talk to tell without feeling ashamed.
I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
