Dr. Fuller: Good morning class, it’s true, just like you, I took honors biology in high school. I enjoyed learning explanations on the cellular structure of our bodies, the ways human traits can pass from parents to children, and how specific genes correlate with the probability of a disease transferring to an offspring.

MY HOMESCHOOLING EXPERIENCE My twofold experience with home schooling and attending a regular school has been a very stimulating and insightful venture, an experience that exposed me, in a period of 7-8 years, to two very distinct ways of going through formal education. I had been going to a conventional school from kindergarten through grade 4. When in school, I had to get up every morning at 6am, get ready, wear my school clothes, and rush to school, not to come back until half-past three in the afternoon.

I would like to take a moment to talk about the two most important and influential people in my life my parents Sabrina and Darren Hardnick. As I sat them down to talk to them about their past and their future I actually learned a lot more about them. It’s true when they say “you learn something new everyday”. Let’s start off with my mother Sabrina Hardnick, well let’s start when she was Sabrina McIntosh. February 14,1975 at Kaiser Hospital (no longer open) in Cleveland, Ohio Sabrina Lattice McIntosh was born.
Life history of different scientist and their extraordinary contributions to science always inspired me. When I was in class 7, I had read a book named “History of Science”. In this book I read about the life history Antonio Van Leuen Hook, Alfred Nobel and Madam Curie. Their contribution and dedication level toward science surprised me. Since then I can never imagine myself other than science students.
I’ve personally seen how my foster father comes home at 4 AM from work at the plastic cup factory, and how he did not complain when he woke up on the same day at 9 AM and commuted back to the factory, starting the cycle again. Moreover, I’ve seen my foster mother struggle to feed porridge to her disabled 17-year-old daughter, asking me to help stretch her underdeveloped arms and legs so she would feel calm enough to eat. The next two days helped me
