Stella felt very angry for having to start high school in a different city where she had no friends. This situation is sometimes very hard for some kids but we would have to learn how to overcome this. I have an older cousin who was finishing grade 8 and she was telling me how she was scared to go to high school. I told her to just relax and keep calm. She came back after her first day and told me it went
Paulette required constant visits to the pediatrician, expensive medications and therapy sessions.

Although, they cared very much for Amelia, they didn’t have time to take care of her. Since her grandmother had suffered from many family death’s she needed something to keep it off her mind so taking care of Amelia would be a good distraction.

I had to continue with my responsibilities and help my mother and take care of my autistic son. That was not an easy task to achieve. I went back to school and I was slowly losing my sanity and composure due to the fact that I did not grieve properly. I assisted in planning both funerals which, again was hard. I went to school and one of my Art professors noticed a change in me I explained to her how I lost my aunt and told me to see a therapist.
In 2014 I was set in stone to attend Cottey College, an all girls school in middle of nowhere Missouri. Sounds terrible? Not to me, especially since this college was transferrable to Smith College the school of various influential women such as Betty Friedan, Madeline L 'Engle, and Julia Child. Although, life took a turn for the worst as my family began to struggle with money- a foreign concept to me-and I ended up in a relationship that caused me to become severely depressed and maladaptively approach all aspects of everyday life at school, work and with friends. Not only that I had recently, been diagnosed with PTSD and Major Depressive Disorder.
she had to be very strong girl to go through that every day. Karassiens wasn’t ready for Arithmetic class because she says "My brain went limp when the teacher called on me to answer a question. even when i knew the answer. I couldn’t find my voice for fear i would be wrong (karassiens 106)". At her old school they learn at a slow pace so she was behind on that subject.
The day my mother was diagnosed with cancer was the day that impacted my life. I was in middle school at the time, I was ashamed to have a mother who was ill and who was not able to contribute on certain things. For instance, she was not able to go out as much because the air can cause her to get ill. Not only was I ashamed of her, but soon after, my mom had begun to put her faith in the Lord, which made it even harder for me to adapt too because we were not all that religious, but we would go to church once in awhile. I was becoming more upset at her and the world. I began to disobey my parents and show no interest in anything.
At that age, I had to be able to be around other kids every day, and if I was homeschooled, how could I do that? Being 10 years old, I argued with her logic anyway. Fifth grade was a hard year, I suffered a lot from anxiety and “bouts of sadness” which we later learned to be depression. Sometimes, I would just shut down when too overwhelmed and my eyes would glaze over. I’d just go silent.
I was afraid I would become that black girl who dropped out of high school or got pregnant at a young age. After all, that is what people expected me to do right? Wrong! I worked extremely hard in everything I participated in. My mom was barely around due to her working long hours
One of the scariest moments as a parent was when I dropped my child off to school on her first day of kindergarten. It was at that moment I had to put my trust in a complete stranger, as they would take care of my child for the next seven hours. I would imagine the parents would contact the administration to seek additional information deeming the teacher as competent. As an administrator I would listen to the concerns of the parents. In addition, I would let them know that all teachers are observed/evaluated to ensure the students are receiving proper instruction.
