A doctor had brought a bunch of puppies to the surgery enter. My dad saw them and knew that my family was eventually going to get a puppy, so instead of talking to my mom, he texted my sister and me.

This August at the age of seven, beautiful Hannah was surrendered to Caring About The Strays by her family after they had a baby. Heartbroken and depressed, she spent her first few days hiding, crying, and not eating. Due to the circumstances we made sure she received extra care, love and attention.

The biggest memory that I had was when I was sent to foster care. It started years ago when my dad decided to drink every single day and social services didn’t think that was something kids to be around so my sister and I had to stay with my grandma for a few months. We couldn’t stay with my mom because she didn’t have a house or a job and none of her boyfriends wanted kids in their house. My mom didn’t like us staying with our grandma because she’s not a nice person to be around.
In my opinion I haven 't changed that much. I feel that I have become more mature in life in general and in my writing and language. I also think that my personality has changed a little but not very much. I have tried to start helping people more were at the beginning of the year I didn 't help very many people because I didn 't know very many people. I have also improved a lot.
Going into freshman year of highschool my cousin Emma moved in with my family and I. That’s when my perspective of myself changed. Emma helped me get past racism, she made me stronger, and taught me when to stick up for myself. Without Emma I would still be offended when someone calls me black or cry when people say my curly hair is weird. I'm not the insecure little girl I used to be.
To the men who like to objectify my sister, As a younger sister, I’ve always had my sister “the evil bitch” to look out for me - sometimes this was nice but other times I didn’t always appreciate it! She always took care of me and stood up to those who were being mean or rude to me and trust me there’s been a few of those in my short lifetime. She bought me hot chips at school, completely unprompted by myself or our mother! She cheered for me when I succeeded and had Disney or Barbie movie marathons with me when I was sad and just when we felt like it.

During my elementary years, I don’t recall being interested in reading, but I do remember the first time I fell in love with it. I was in my 7th-grade reading class. I just completed a quiz when my teacher realized that I had nothing to do after. She offered me a book that I will remember for the rest of my life because it is the book that basically started my reading journey.

The past four years of my life hold both my highest of highs and my lowest of lows. High school can be a very awkward time period in a person’s life. Four years ago, I made the intimidating switch from St. Mary’s School to Algoma High School. There were certain aspects of high school which made me nervous, but academics was not one of them. I learned how to be a responsible student in my earlier years, and school had always come relatively easy to me.
Music has always been a part of my life. In definition, it is “vocal or instrumental sounds combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” Ever since I was a young child, I have loved music. The strong, steady beats, the entrancing melodies, and the lyrics that vary between heartwarming and heart-wrenching have always had an unexplainable effect on my life.
