She is now recovered and is serving in the military, but she has scars from her past that will last a lifetime. I am eighteen and a senior in high school, and I was forced to grow up before my time. During thirteen years of my life we spent very poor or in an unstable household with my mother’s boyfriend, I kept good grades, never got in trouble with the law or at school, and never did drugs, I had baby-sitting jobs and when I turned sixteen, I got a job and held that job for two years. In my life I want more. To succeed I must give up who I am now to be who I want to be.
It all started, when my family and I decided to go hiking at Pinnacle Mountain. We never would have thought that this astonishing achievement would happen. I remember that day, like it was yesterday, the day I faced my greatest fear. Hours went by waiting for my family to finish packing our bags making sure to grab everything that we might need in case of an emergency. With at least two or three bags fully packed and glutted, we rushed out the door, into the car and off we went.
I had never heard of Gulf Shores and didn’t know what there was to do there. We left on an early Thursday morning and had a long day of travel. We flew into Pensacola, Florida and drove to Gulf Shores. When we got to our condo, I was excited to see a really large pool there. I love to swim and I couldn’t wait to jump in.
I am a twenty-three year old mother, full-time student and wife. I have come a long way since my high school years, from a period of inner conflict and lack of motivation to recently receiving an acceptance letter into a very competitive sonography program at the University of Texas School of Health Professions in Houston Texas. I have come to this program to start a career in the field I have always dreamed of being a part of, a dream that began when I was a child playing nurse. Although my interest in the medical field began with nursing, life has taken men through a path that lead me to sonography. Sonography caught my interest at sixteen when I needed a breast exam to diagnose whether I had breast cancer or not and it grew exponentially
I was in 4rd grade and I have never been to Mexico before. My mother decided to take me there for about two weeks to visit my family there and my grandparents, but during that time I was still attending school so the teacher just gave me two weeks of school work to make up when I get back. I got home and my mother was already packing up, so I went to pack my stuff and picked out my favorite clothes to wear. Once I was done, I went to sleep, mother awakened me up at 3am to get ready to leave to the airport. After a very long wait in lines at the airport, we were finally boarded on the plane.
This would contribute to Jeannette Walls childhood being unlike any other. However, after her junior year in high school Walls decided to live with her older city in the big apple.

I can still remember the vibrant colors of the coral in the crystal clear water. I have always loved snorkeling, and everyday we were there, I would swim down to the reef and look at all the beautiful fish. There was a fish that stood out among the others that I had never seen before. No matter how hard I fished for this striped winged fish, I could not seem to get the fish to bite.
My friends and I put our bags down and went to start riding the rides. Riding the rides is exhilarating as we get wet and float around in the tubs. Around the park, there are sounds of laughter and smells of chlorine. We patiently wait in many long lines, but it is worth it. Due to the radiant heat of the sun, my friends and I become tired and hungry.
The race would start at 8:30 and we needed to be ready to help any swimmers who needed us. The event kicked off with swimmers leaving the beach at Sandy Point State Park and all the preparation culminates in the next 2-3hours of idling and adjusting position, like finding the right fishing spot, to stay where we were most needed. There are, understandably, no boats with any moving gear allowed anywhere near the swimmers, so if a swimmer needs help a kayaker tows them out to a boat. Most folks don’t need medical help, they just recognize, like a marathon runner, they won’t be finishing this year. We stay ready and vigilant, trying to stay stationary throughout the race.
They were so happy that they built a Seaworld by themselves. Many people wanted to work there, so they hired those persons. At least one of their family members wanted to work but many did not. One of Sally's sisters did not go to the grand opening. Her name was Anahi.
Four years after that I came to the U.S.A at the age of nine not knowing a single word of English. My family lived with my uncles in a two room house with a total of thirteen people living there. I understood the challenges and sacrifices that my parents were making to bring me to this country. I quickly learned that I would have to work hard to succeed and take advantage of the opportunities my parents came here for. When I started school, I got to meet English-speaking Latinos who helped me immerse in this new culture.
I think that these orcas are humans living in the ocean because they are so much like us. We need space, a social life and so much more. This documentary has definitely made an impact in my life as well as other people lives. Helen O 'Hara states that the film made just over $2m at the US box office, but amid overwhelmingly positive reviews it had a disproportionate effect. Music stars including The Beach Boys and Trisha Yearwood cancelled scheduled appearances at the Bands, Brews & BBQ event at SeaWorld Orland and Busch Gardens Tampa and a steady stream of celebrities followed suit and spoke out against the parks, including the likes of Harry Styles earlier this summer.
