Ever since the age of three I have been an older brother. Now sixteen years later, I have six beautiful little sisters. I am the only son of all my mother 's children. Being a brother has taught me so many life lessons that it is hard to tell where they start and "end". These life lessons have taken over my outlook on life and the way I pursue it. I have a very big, close, and open minded family so if someone acted up or did something impressive than almost every will know in about a week. An example of how open minded we are would be that everyone in my family is Christian and some, not all, goes to church every Sunday. My grandmother is one that goes to church, she has all of her children baptized, and the younger one went to Sunday school. …show more content…
I was the Vice-President then a two months before school ended the President. My high school was not too big it had about 1,500 students in total give or take a few hundred at the start of each school year. But my freshman year there was so many students that people had to get kicked out of the school and transferred to another. To put it in some perspective each if not all of the classrooms have a 40-50 occupancy limit. In my freshman year if you were not early to a class then you would be standing in the back with ten other students. In middle and elementary school I went to about 4-5 different schools. The years of each is kind of a blur because I would transfer to each of them depending on where I lived but they are Walton Elementary School, Clark Elementary School, Waterson-Lake Middle School , Gallagher Middle School, and Scranton Elementary School. Now in Cleveland K-8 is group together so the middle and elementary parts are meaningless. But Scranton is special because in kindergarten I was expelled for severe anger issues and caused $4,000 in damages that my mom had to pay back. That night I guessed my mother whooped that anger and mischievous right out of me because she said that I became completely good out of nowhere. Besides being expelled, I have never gotten in trouble in school. My friends have never seen me get angry and a few people have told me that I am too nice because whenever there is a problem I just remain calm and …show more content…

So next was OSU which was great because my friend Joe was going there and we could hang out but at my school we use a program called Naviance and another that I cannot remember the name of, that needed to be sync together. So even though I did the easy and application they did not know who I was because they did not have a transcript and by the time I found out it was too late to apply for the main campus. Then Xavier University in January accepted me and I feel "in love" with that school. In the mail they gave me a 4x6 foot flag with a big blue X on it. I completed everything that needed to be done. I had my roommates as well as my classes. Everything was picture perfect except for one thing, and that was the bill. The total cost of going to Xavier is $46,000 for a year and with all of the of my awards and financial aid it brought it down to $12,000 for this year. To put it in perspective the tuition of Akron University is $11,000 a year. But because I have six sisters my mom could not afford for me to go there. I was so
