I do not that not let any setbacks or obstacles interfere with my education. I have maintain a 3.7 GPA despite of my after school job during my junior year. My mom told me during my tenth grade year that my junior year was going to either make me or break me. She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes.
Hi this is you from 7th Grade, I want to tell you some info from when you were in LEAP in Mr.Hooten 's Class. When we first started LEAP one project we did was the One Word Project. I chose the word CAN because I normally say “I can 't do that!” , so when I say I can, it really motivates me to do it or try harder. I have a promise for you, Will you promise that you’ll try to get better grades.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home.
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.

Personal Mission Statement I intend to become a forensic scientist and have a strong, happy family. I know that to accomplish that I have to work hard and learn how to be more confident in my decisions. I do not think of myself as a really strong leader, but I know I can lead if I have to. My main weak parts are questioning myself and my decisions.
Once I settled in , the teachers started with their warning about how college is ten times more difficult than high school. In my junior year, I started attending college while still in high school, and I learned that college is easier than high
In my sophomore year of high school, I had the opportunity to make a real change in the world. My 10th grade English teacher gave us an assignment to chose a organization of our choosing that is helping a cause that we feel needs more attention. We were then told that we would have to present our cause to a small group of people and try and convince them to support our cause financially. I saw this as the best opportunity to actually walk through life and know that I actually changed something in the world for the better. I also saw it as an opportunity that I could feel accomplished about.
When I drove home from school, I stopped at a gas station. I wanted to put a full tank in my car. However, as I looked at the gas price, I realized I could not afford it. I panicked. I knew there was a shortage of gas this week, and the gas prices had increased.
The debate over whether to trust eyewitness accounts or doers sic analyst in crime scenes is a long standing one. Although there have been great advances in technology which allow for greater analysts of crime scenes, in court, the side with primary sources, or people that witnessed the crime being committed, are more likely to gain the approval of the jury. This is because “seeing is believing”, so if there is a person that “saw” the crime, jury are more likely to be convinced than if there is just lab results and crime scene analyst.

The testimonies of eyewitnesses should not be used as
If I were the person that I used to be back in high school, or even directly after high school, I would fail these classes with straight “F”s. The reason is not because I was not smart enough, but because I was not willing to put in the effort, concentration, and dedication needed to get a good grade. This is hard work! Good thing I decided to grow up a bit in the past 14 years so I take it seriously.
Imagine life in four walls: no dining room, no bedroom, just the kitchen and a shared room for three. To go to the bathroom or kitchen, it had to cross the courtyard. That was my house. I was born in the Dominican Republic and I lived with my grandmother and my sister who is two years older than me. That one room was where we ate, slept and lived.
