Cyntoia was born to an alcoholic mother with records of multiple psychiatric disorders; quoting from Brown’s mother, “Bipolar, personality disorder, suicidal, manic depressive, which is an unguarded condition. At times I’ve had homicidal thoughts for people that have hurt me. I’ve been raped, and I always wanted to do things to them for hurting me.” Furthermore, to add even more to the trauma, Cyntoia, her mother and grandmother were all raped over the course of three generations. Cyntoia’s mother also was unable to take care of the girl, as she has a history of intergenerational abuse; She had also testified to heavy drinking, about a fifth of whiskey per day, while pregnant with the girl; mother’s alcoholism had resulted in Cyntoia being born with Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, which has slowed her brain development and had lowered her IQ. Brown’s mother began using crack cocaine when the girl was eight months; furthermore, by the time she was 2 years old, Cyntoia was given up for adoption.
I never realized how my disability would change me, until I was rejected from the military. My mother was addicted to drugs before I was born and during her pregnancy.

Surgery was scheduled the following summer to build a new eardrum.
One such instance would be the recent death of an 18-year-old sophomore student of De La Salle College of St. Benilde due to the hazing he experienced from the Tau Gamma Fraternity. The victim, identified as Guillo Cesar Servando, was not alone in his plight. He was hazed along with three other schoolmates, although Guillo proved to be the most unfortunate.

By 11 pm, the ambulance was called but their efforts were in vain because Guillo was pronounced dead on the spot (Lacierda).This incident serves as a reminder and warning to those who are currently part of a fraternity and those who will join one in the
Moreover, I had never been to the US before, not even for vacations. The past five years of my life have had an enormous impact on me; I have been through happy and sad moments, achievements and failures. Although the journey has not been as easy as I thought it would be, every circumstance I have faced has shaped me into the person I am now. I wanted to give up many times, but I am glad I did not.

My mother tried to go to college at Ball State, but she barely finished a year before she decided it wasn’t for her. My father only did brief certification classes and/or tests; this was so he could get a better job or higher pay. Conventional college was not for him, in his words.

I hated having very few friends and wondered if I would ever find true friends. Right after I started fifth grade, my parents told me we were leaving New York and moving a thousand miles away to Wisconsin, America’s Dairyland. I wasn’t very excited at first, but then I realized that I could start off with a clean slate and so I made it my mission to make new friends. We moved at the end of the school year, and I was psyched to start my new life. A couple months later, I started sixth grade.
