It was a very stressful time but I try to do the best I could due to the situation at the time. I was among the few students that attendant class fulltime online and as a result of lack of electricity, I was unable to do the weekly assignments alone with any weekly discussions. My professors at the time told me that I had two options. One, I had to drop out and retake everything over and the next was work on my final paper and the best I could get was a C plus given the

    South central is known for being a low income, dangerous environment inhabited by mostly Black and Latino families. Due to transportation issues, my mother enrolled me into a small low funded charter school because it was the closest to home. My school was not part of the LAUSD district thus our funding was very low and we were constantly threatened of being shut down. Since my school poorly funded, it was exposed to structural violence, the quality of learning was poor and there was constant surveillance. (Abrego, lecture 1/20/16) Our campus was minuscule compared to other high schools, we did not have enough money for a gym, sports, computer lab or even a cafeteria.…

I find it hard because I did not know what to write about and which assignments I should start on first. I manage to overcome this challenge by narrowing the topics and start on the paper that was closest to deadline.

    I felt like I was spinning my wheels because after a whole year went by I still didn’t have any real credits on my transcript (after I failed a couple of classes and had to withdraw from a few more). It was also a huge waste of money to only attend part-time. I was paying for a lot of classes that never made it on to my transcript. This time around, I want to make the most of Student 2 every semester and the financial aid I receive, so that I can move on to a four-year university after just two years. I will also need to be sure to attend class sessions regularly.…

I had to go in everyday after school and do all of the make-up work and take all the tests that I had missed.…
