I remember looking to the left and right of me everyone seemed to be enjoying the first day of school. Everyone including myself showing off our clean new outfits we had bought during back to school sales. Eagerly waiting for the bell to ring; I remember walking around trying to find something to do as I wait impatiently for school to start. Trying to find something I can go and chill I walk over to the school gym, taking a look around me I see our school colors, which are black and yellow. Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress.
A walkout that changed African American students lives at Adkin High School happened in Kinston, North Carolina(NCPEDIA). Adkin High School was built in 1928 for African American kids that weren’t allowed to go to school because of segregation(NCPEDIA).

At local white high schools, students got brand new books but at Adkin High School the students got
As a child, my family took a vacation to a far- away place called Colorado. Being right around five years old, I had absolutely no idea what that meant. All I knew was that the car ride to get to Colorado was going to feel like an eternity. My parents told me they were taking me to a city called Colorado Springs.
so I just said “Hello”. We started walking to my class just down the hall from the main lobby. The clear steps on the tile floor inching forward to my new life in a new school. I arrive at the door and Mr. Dunning says hello to the class. He announced to the staring first graders that there new student had finally arrived, which was me.
Right now I’m in prep. In prep, you are given a whole new identity and they give you some information that they already know like suspects and places where they deal the drugs. As I leave prep to the college I will be attending until I finish this mission Axel gives me a look saying to not mess it up. I know I could handle it, but what I didn’t know was I was going to get a whole lot harder than expected
On Wednesday, February 1, 2017, Chino Hills High School was out of power, resulting all the students got released early. I walked into the school campus about to sit at the normal table that I wait at. I usually get to school thirty minutes early because of traffic. I did notice something was off when I sat down. The area where I sat was a bit darker than usual.
The only location that I was aware of is Miami, FL, until the age of eleven. When my mother told me and my sister that we were going to visit a place called Chile, it was an exciting feeling of what I was about to experience. Visiting a different area there are so many expectations on how the environment will be, the strangers to encounter, and being different to others. At being such a young age my imagination will run wild on how the environment will be.
When we arrived at prom, we had a magnificent time together. One thing that really caught my eye was Nate always looking at me as if I had toilet paper on my shoe. I didn’t pay much attention to it. I felt a little quiverish towards the middle of prom so I told Austin I would go home. He escorted me to our ride and gave me a kiss on the cheek saying, “Goodnight”.
But unfortunately, she left to the Boarding School a semester ahead of me. Then by the time I got accepted into Flandreau, she had gotten herself into a predicament and she wasn’t there to tend the winter semester. Flandreau always had their little dinky school dances; it was a tradition that occurred every Friday night.
Before my sophomore year I found out that I was pregnant with my son. I decided to take a year away from school to embrace being a new mom before going back to school. Being a new mom and working I found it very hard to go back in the classroom so I a decided to finish out school online. I begun online classes at Everest College online. During this time I also relocated to Albany New York where I obtained my Associate degree in Business administration from Everest College online.
Did you move around a lot when you were a child? When I was 9 I learned what it meant to lose all your friends and leave behind all you know because your mother has decided to move to the Mexican border in Arizona. Before we moved it was my purpose in life to sprout wings and go to a different dimension. For a while it stayed like this because I had friends that were just like me. After we moved I learned about Amelia Earhart in school and decided that I wanted to become a pilot and travel the world.
My parents and I moved to the Dominican Republic when I was thirteen years old. Living there as a young American came with many challenges. One of the biggest threats against foreigners is violence. Within my first years of living in Dominican Republic, I had experienced two incidents at it firsthand. The first incident happen a week before school began, I was mugged by two assailants; man on a motorcycle and another man on foot.
When I was living Guatemala I was living a alone with my son Franklyn Alexis Santiago Tercero-Jacinto. His father did not want to have anything to do with us and left us about four years ago. I was living alone and I did fear that something could happen for the reason that is very unsafe and crime is well known to happen. On June 26,2016 was a date that marked my life I was rapped by a man named Miguel Angel Lopez. He was a man that would go to the restaurant where I worked to eat.
