When I was a Sophomore in High School my dad had been out of work for a couple and was forced to take a job in Odessa, TX , so he promptly moved to Texas to start his new job. My mother and I had to stay in California so I could finish high school and so she could take care of her parents. From then on, I was only really able to see my dad for a week every month or two and we were unable to keep the strong connection we had before. So as I started my college search I looked into colleges in Texas so I could live closer to him, and that is when I first came across Rice University. I knew with my high school grades I would not have been accepted, so I decided I would perform as well as possible at my State School and hope I could gain an

That year didn 't really last very long until my family gather enough money to move back to New Mexico to start my sophomore year in a Bloomfield high school; Because of all the moving around making my high school experience harder to grasp until it took me until my Junior year that I get the gist of what to do in high school. As time pass by in high school, I 've gained a lot more experience with people and knowledge of different types of school of how they work and it was all due to the moving around to place to place for a whole year. Even living in New Mexico I had a clearer picture of my origins and how I could use that knowledge of my future. Though learning about my origin didn 't gave a clear picture of what I wanted to become, I thought about it all the time ever since my beginning of high school.

About 20 years ago my parents came to the United States from Mexico in order to give their children a better life. As I near the end of my high school career I realize now that what they wanted for my siblings and I was a fresh start from poverty and the opportunity to a higher education. While my family and I have faced numerous hardships in the past few years, we have found ways to overcome them and make the best of what we do have. Currently, I live in a single-parent household with a younger sibling. After the separation of my parents, we have found ourselves financially unstable and constantly working to better our instability.
