How should I start this story off?; I’ve been through an enormous amount throughout my life. As I go through this journey with you i just want you to know that this is who I am, and I can 't change that. I have lived in a lot of places in the last eighteen years. I feel that this is what has shaped me to who I am today because of where i’ve been and how my experiences there have made me grow. I grew up in a incredibly small town in the middle of nowhere called Stet, Which is still located in the middle of the state of Missouri. Keep in mind that this tiny town has a population of like 400 people, so growing up I never was that social. My parents raised me and 2 of my four sisters out here for most of our youth. My oldest sister is 37 and …show more content…
Growing up in a small town made me appreciate how much time the teachers had to instruct you. While in kindergarten I met one of my good friends Dillon! Everyday after school we would hang out and ride dirt bikes. To this day I am glad that we have been able to stay good friends; even though we live far away from each other now. After this one year my mom took me out of public school and home schooled me. I didn’t like being homeschooled because that meant that I wouldn 't be able to hang out with my friends as much. It was an adjustment for awhile when your mom is the bus driver for school and you don’t even ride the bus. My dad was never there during the day because he got up super early to go to work. I have older parents so I wasn 't that old when my dad retired. When he did this he was home a lot more; but I think I liked it better with my mom home. Growing up with 4 sisters, their was a lot of competition until I was about 13. This is around the time that I went back to public school for the sixth grade. When I was in seventh grade, I started football, I really enjoyed it. I played as a offencive linemen on the team for about 4 years. When I went back to school I attended Norborne Middle and High school, and it made me have a better understanding on being social. Before I wouldn’t think about going and talking to someone I didn’t know; Things have really changed since …show more content…
This was my Junior year of highschool, when I was seventeen years old. I got used to driving real fast because I drove about fifty miles every day.I always enjoyed being independent because when you are you don’t have to ask anyone for anything. After completing about 75% of this year of school I sadly dropped out because the stress in my life was to much. If I can regret one thing in my life it was that day. At first it was amazing, work was easier, everything was fun but after awhile I started to realize where my life was going. This alone was so scary that eventually, when I moved up her I decided to finish highschool and get that diploma that I so desperately

    My parents barely had a high school education due to the fact they came from a third world country. So it made things harder on me when I came home from school and didn’t even have anyone to help further explain to me certain homework assignments, such as the fundamentals of long division. Some nights homework was so hard on me that it became a deadweight and no one was able to be there and help me but myself. I had to make the best out of my comprehension by cramming as much as I possibly can in school and doing further research on my phone when I reach home. At times my grades reflected my lack of understanding, but I never let my situation define my educational outcome so I worked harder than everyone else to get things done.…

My love for football was still there and I still dreamed of playing College or NFL football but I saw myself starting to dread practices.…

    I began to take an interest in football at the age of eleven and joined the school team in the autumn of 2009. For five years I played on defense as well as making friends with the older girls who’ve been on the team longer than I have and new girls who join every year. Although we weren’t the best team comparing with the other schools, we always had fun during tournaments and never failed to show good sportsmanship. Playing football and being part of my school team helped me develop my leadership skills as well as working as a group. In the first year or two I’d get upset that we wouldn’t win every game, but as I grew up I realized that having fun and playing the sport I loved was far more important than winning.…

    On the weekends we would play two sometimes three shows all over New England and sometimes even down the east coast. Both myself and my parents knew school wasn’t what I wanted anymore. Being the supportive parents that they are, the next day my mom called me and said “There is a GED test in two weeks at Northern Essex Community College. If you take a GED pre-test and pass next week, I’ll let you drop out of school.” That was all I needed to hear. I took my GED pre-test, passed, and two weeks later took the GED and never looked…
