“What educator served as a champion for you as a student and why?” My 4th grade teacher, Kim Howell, is why I’m the person that I am today. She’s a real life hero and by all meanings of the word a champion too not only me, but all students that she comes into contact with. She only sees the potential in her students.
The Henderson kids were all homeschooled and had a huge support system in their academics. Mrs. Henderson offered to assist with my daily homework objectives just as she did with her kids. With this in mind, I made my way over to her house every other day with perplexing assignments. Time after time, the lady who I believed to be a home school teacher for her kids assisted me with my constant homework questions. It wasn’t until years later where I learned she was simply a mother of homeschooled kids and not a teacher as I believed.

That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
My mom worked long hours, so we rarely went out anymore. I was often in charge of looking after my sisters, and I’d make up games and stories for them, fueling my creativity. We didn’t have much, and it doesn’t seem like anything special, but those three years of seeing my mom work so intensely to provide for us, of waiting for my dad’s phone calls, and having to take responsibility for my sisters, it all helped me become increasingly mature and independent.

This fear is the same fear that Diane went through everyday not knowing whether her family was going to be safe from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). I wanted to know a bit more about Diane Guerrero’s life and how life was for her when her parents were deported to Columbia and I found an article named Op-Ed ‘ Orange is the New Black’ actress: My parents were deported , which mentions how Diane was basically by herself when her parents were deported.
