That experience taught me a valuable lesson about being realistic and figuring out what would be the best decision for my life. However it didn’t end there. As you know I never give up and even when I’m told to stop or I’m not good enough I still keep going.

On this week’s Latin weekly test, I finally received a grade I can be proud of. There were days that I almost broke into tears studying Latin or doing homework question with Latin tutor or the professor. It’s something, a sign of improvement.
