    From the beginning, my parents were able to instill a hardworking mindset into me, never allowing me to give up when the going got tough, but instead continuing to push me to try harder every day. My parents were responsible for also trying their hardest, pushing past the fact that they did not have college degrees in order to have a good income to support me as best they could, and put me into a good school in a good area. Their interest in my education is what caused me to be what my elementary school called “advanced”. That title opened up doors for me. I was not only able to learn at a faster pace then, but also trained to learn at a faster pace now, when information isn’t nearly as simple and easy to comprehend.…

Even though I am sure university will be more…

    I was a whole semester behind and I made it all up quickly. With this new school I was able to move at my own pace and despite being behind I still finished the school year early.

He, like my mom, advocated for me to go to the new high school for a year or two to try it out and see if I liked it. He knew in the long run that it would be good challenge for me, at the time I was delusional and was not aware of the benefits of this choice. Like any teenager, I didn 't want to go through with this, but I trusted my dad and ended up going to the school for the full four years.…

    First I wasn’t socially up to the caliber as everyone else was, and just in general I didn’t feel like I belonged in that setting.

Once freshman year came around, I was getting tired of being at home all day every day. I ended up returning to public school that year, but I only attended for two periods of the day.…

    However, the most important thing I learned in high school was that you can 't change the past, but you can improve the future. I think the most important thing I learned was to take the experiences I have and use them toward the future. It gave me ambition and passion to become the best version of myself I could possibly be. While I am not happy with the decisions I forced myself to make or who I really even was for much of the time, I probably wouldn 't be who I am right now without that experience. I’m grateful that I used my senior year to learn about myself.…
