Every time things got hard, both my mom and dad would tell me to “Focus, take school serious so that you can be successful and help us in the future”. Those words were my call to adventure. That was my motivation, that made me graduate high school and enroll myself at College of Saint Elizabeth.

I spent my life like this up until my freshman year of highschool; of course, I had made some friends, but I still didn’t like to talk to people I didn’t know all too much about.
