Also we did not travel much because we could not afford much tickets to travel to places, so most of my life was spent in Canada, more specifically Ottawa. I started school at Cambridge public school on September 2006. I did not have much friends in kindergarten because I was a quiet kid, and I still am to this day. I still made it through kindergarten with little to no friends, because when I went home I knew I can play with my brother or sister. After the first month of starting kindergarten, my life had probably one of the biggest events that had happen to me.
In my junior year, I began spending more intimate time with my biological father’s family. During this time, I grew close to my grandfather. Right as our relationship was blossoming, he succumbed to leukemia and died eleven days before my birthday. This event challenged who I thought I was and questioned what was important to me.
My birth affected my family in many different ways, although I had two older sisters. My parents still had to buy a lot of new things for me. I was another member of the family! My sisters says that when I was little it was annoying for me to be the troublemaker. My family accepted me and I am thankful for that.
I lived in Garland, Texas, for the most part of my infancy and childhood years and then I moved to McKinney, Texas, around the age of eight or nine. Throughout the rest of my childhood I lived in the same city and attended school there throughout the rest of my adolescent years. 2. Developmental Milestones Biological
My teachers were so nice and helped me after school for 30 minutes every day. The students were nice and I learned to participate in class. I was a bright girl so I knew how to make friends. I was in ELD (English language development) until first grade.
Family is the biggest significance in my life, even if I did not have the strongest bond with all my relatives, because I knew I could count on them if I ever needed help. Relatives came from all over the United States to come celebrate with me, so I truly felt special that day.
In austin so I started 6th grade and we moved again but this time by some train tracks and I went to school at Paredes. For half a year then went to a school closer to my house called fulmore for a few months then back to Paredes to finish sixth. Then we moved up north to brownie Dr and I went to Dobie for 7th grade. Half ways through the year I moved back with my dad but when summer came along back to my mom 's . Then 8th went to Paredes with my cousin for half a year then moved back north on metric to edge creek apartments and moved to Burnet middle school.
The days I did go I was exhausted from staying up with my mother and had difficulty staying awake or concentrating in class. My grades suffered horribly so over time the thought of even going to high school faded from my mind. In fact, if it weren 't for the special help of my math teacher I most likely would have failed 8th grade. When I came to Pennsylvania things completely turned around. With heavy hearts, my younger brother and I moved up to live with my mom 's aunt and uncle after her death.
I was attending Jefftown high school but it started to be too much pressure on me, so I dropped out like the third day of school. I know what’s right my unborn child and I, so I don’t need anyone telling me right from wrong. Thankfully I have a couple best friend named Carrie that are always there for me.
was born in a small town in Texas known as Laredo. It was a poor city and was basically the border town to Mexico, it was always a mess, always hot, and only snowed once in 2002. Even though the city I was born in was harsh place, I had a great family that raised me well and taught me how to be respectful to my elders. Home was always different, every 2 to 3 years we always moved around so I really didn’t have many friends, until I moved to San Antonio is where I found a great home in 2007, the neighborhood was filled with nice people and each house actually had a lawn and not just broken cars or dried dirt in the front porches. The community was fantastic as well, the people and atmosphere we lived in when we moved to San Antonio was so much better than Laredo because people were actually nice to you and everyone didn’t look like they were going to cause trouble.
My family for sure, plays the biggest part in shaping of who I am today. Growing up wasn’t always smooth sailing, I often was influenced by many negative people that tried and guide me in the wrong direction;however, my family members were the ones that never seized to stop improving me. During the peak of my junior year when all the algebra, physics, history, and english classes were piling up in enormous numbers and were causing me to stress and
When my mother's dad passed away from a brain aneurysm it was very hard on her. She was very close with her father, and she loved him very much. She became lost, and slightly out of it for a few weeks it was a sad time ,and tough time for my family we were devastated. When this tragedy occurred in my family my mother flew to new york where he lived for the funeral, and so did the rest of the family. I realized then that no matter how busy the family was, when this happened we came together to console one another.
The high school that I was in gave me an interesting experience. I was able to learn and experience different lessons with in my high school. Three of those life lessons that I went through are when my school was placed on lockdown, another experience is a club that I joined which helped really mature. Finally the other experience I faced in high school was that some of my friends that I had wanted me to join them in some bad situations but I kept myself out of those situations.
There have been many people in my life who have impacted it both negatively and positively, but no one has had an impact in my life greater than my mom. This woman is just amazing in my eyes, right from the beginning because of the way she raised me, if I had children I would raise them the same way she raised me. The person she is, in general, has really had a great effect in my life, and also how she has always told me about the struggles shes had in her life from the ones I didn't see to the ones I have seen with my own eyes. I believe if I didn't know my mother as well as I do, she wouldn't have influenced me as much as she does. The way my mom raised me has made me the person I am today, so if I were to say she didn't impact my life I would be lying.
Kindergarten to 8th grade I attended a private school called Holy Family Catholic School. The school was very small along with classes, teachers extremely strict and hallways always quiet, the totally opposite from Dr. Henry A. Wise. My first day of high school I was very nervous I was not used to big classes, endless amount of students in the halls and the loud ruckus. This was an educational challenge for me because it was a totally different learning environment for me that i had to get used to quickly. My studying habits also challenged me through high school because test and quizzes were given out frequently and if you didn't know how to study you probably wouldn’t get a good grade.
