My School Life

My School career so far has been a bumpy ride.

A. Elementary School

1. P.S. 243 (1995 – 1999)

2. Concord Baptist Elementary School (1999 – 2005)

B. Middle School

1. St. Marks Lutheran (2003 – 2005)

C. High School

1. Benjamin Banneker Academy (2005 – Present)

When I was little I used to love school but as I got older I began to like it less. About after 5th grade these changes began to occur. I would cut school to stay home and play video games and watch tv and all those types of things. Up until about the end of my junior year of high school did I get back on the band wagon and get my act together. My mother told me that all she wants me to do is to go to school and get a good education. She said I could do my best only if I try. I want to be all that I can BE. I do my best to try and not disappoint her or my family. So I can say that school for me has been a struggle but because of God, my family and their love and support I have made it this far to my Senior year in high school. I'm looking, wanting and expecting for the best. There is no turning back for me because giving up is not an option.
