That season turned out to be my best one out of all. I was named first team all league, first team all miami valley and team MVP. A few days after it had ended I went to the hospital for my surgery. Again, I had to miss days of school for this. I missed days for doctors appointments and therapy.
I had to stay an extra month because i had symptoms of meningitis. All the nurses treated me like I was their own. My mom always told me that those nurses were always holding me and putting bows in the little hair I had. After this story, my appointments were always filled with questions about becoming a nurse. As I got older the questions always got more about college and less about curiosity.
Every time Karina had the chance she came to visit Naiara, mostly for Christmas. In 2007, when Naiara turned 7 she took her to live to Chicago. Karina and Naiara lived together since then until 2012, when Karina’s dad got sick and she had to come back to Santo Domingo to take care of him. After they ran some tests on him, they found out that he had cancer which broke Karina 's heart. She spent months taking him to therapy and giving him medicine.
So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me. Their actions led to me setting high standards for myself because everyone in my family thought I would be a highschool drop out like my siblings.
She ended up giving up on these magazine beauty advice, including other advice that her friends would suggest to her such as tape, make-your-own-crease glue, and sang ka pul. Chung tried it all, except the sang ka pul because she was afraid of the surgery. Her mother continuously brought up the question about whether or not she wanted to get the sang ka pul, but every time she brought it up, Chung always said no. Chung didn’t understand why her mother couldn’t accept her without creased eyes. In the end, she had realized that “He looks at the heart, and that it really doesn’t matter how a person looks” (107).
Jacquline is a 25yo, G3 P2002, who is currently 28 weeks 3 days. She is being followed through our office due to a notable history of postpartum cardiomyopathy.

But as the years went by, my parents, especially my mother, wanted me to do better and get all A’s on my report card in elementary school. Near the last few weeks of grade 7, I got my final report card and I was very disappointed in myself for not getting all A’s. Comparing Jing-mei’s life and mine, the report cards that my parents receive from me are like the tests that Jing-mei receives everyday from her mother. Furthermore, the disappointment that I felt for not meeting my parents expectations is probably how Jing-mei felt when she “began to die” with the thoughts of “raised
It’s an Ivy league school for people in the band. Her friends Jericho and Oliva helped her go do stuff that way she wouldn 't be inside all day.

Another hour went by, she felt terrible, and flew up many times.
They drove all the way to Ben Taub Hospital to give birth to a baby of 7 pounds and 5.3 ounces. Of so much excitement of having their first baby girl of the house.

After two days of being at the hospital Maria was finally able to go home with her daughter.
English was never my good side; I’ve always been a math and science type of person. I began to ask myself, “why did I decide to take honors?” When I look back on the beginning of that year to the end, my confidence in inferring and just being able to get more out of a story skyrocketed. Without really telling me, Mr. Clayton taught me, in the simplest terms, not to give up. This inability to understand was almost like a learning disability for me and he really made me realize I could overcome anything. His class and him as a person has made me a better reader and I can see it through things that happen in my daily life.
