I did not care about school as much as I should have because of what I had happened in my life losing my house for a period of time and losing two people in my family that I loved.

When I was in eighth grade I began to start caring about school more than I did in seventh grade I started to do better in my classes and I started to improve better on my standardize tests.

I know that I am not on the top of my class or make straight A’s all the time like a lot of students do but, I will push myself and challenge myself
