I’m a 16 year old citizen currently living in the Bronx and attending Green Dot Charter H.S. I’m the oldest from an Ecuadorian family with two younger brothers. I grew up in many places trying to acquire a good friendship with others, but never lasted since I kept moving. As I got older there was one simple phrase that I grew up with. “Nothing is impossible unless you just don’t do anything about it.” Once I settled down in the Bronx at the age of 8, everything began to change in my world. My first years of school weren’t the best; I had many struggles and disappointments. After changing school, my level of education was extremely low compared to others. As the years went by I stared realizing that I had to step up my game and change. The things that changed when it came to middle school were as follows: no more coloring, drawing or even napping. It all turn to writing and studying. There was less time for fun and games, unless you organized yourself. Through my perspective I found High School to be the hardest part in my life.

As a 10th grade student now, after a year of being a freshman, I began to notice that my attitude towards high school changed. When I enter high school, I thought it was going to be nearly the same as middle school, but I was wrong. I now had to focus more on my studies than anything else. As a daughter and student, I want to prove to everyone else around me that I will be someone in life. If it takes years to become a doctor just because science isn’t my thing and math is, I’m going to spend those years studying. School was never where I wanted to be, but now that I’m in school, I have noticed that knowledge is the key to the world’s future. I want to pass my class, but I don’t mean with 80’s because to me that is nothing, but a failing grade. I want to see myself with 90’s or even better and I know to get them I have to do my best.

Dealing with no school is where everything changes. I’m the type of girl that likes to party and have fun. You can say I value my time with my family the most since I rarely go out. It’s not because I don’t want to or my parents don’t let me, but because I believe there is a time for everything. To be honest I never saw this way after something actually changed my life. I used to be the one that would spend her time outside more than being home and I believe that’s why am behind in my education and I don’t mean getting left back, but knowing certain things. I don’t blame anyone, but myself. Life to me has come with my obstacles and experience. I have learned from them even if they were the worst. There’s time for fun and games, you just have to know when the right time is.
