    Essay On Small Isolette

    • 724 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The small isolette was my home in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for five months and three days. I was born at twenty-four weeks and one day, four months before my due date on January fifth. I was not alone, however. My twin brother was born on January fourteenth—we were nine days apart. See, my story is not a difficult one to tell, but it has changed slightly over the course of my seventeen years. I could go on to discuss how I’ve had sixteen extensive surgeries. How I only have one working vocal cord. Or even that I was given about a ten percent chance of survival. There were wires upon wires protruding through almost every visible inch of my fragile, almost translucent looking body. Gratefully, during this vulnerable time, I had a top-notch support system, even if one of my supporters hadn’t been born at the time until nine days later. This support system has remained continuous, never faltering once. My twin brother has taught me joy and shown me true companionship. My parents have been the ultimate support system, whether it be hospital trips to the NICU as a baby, going to every early morning soccer game throughout elementary school, or being involved in copious amounts of bake sales and band concerts throughout middle and high school. My family has been there through it all; they have shown me unconditional love. Through these events, I have found independence and strength. I have learned how to find my voice and how to feel pride towards who I am and what…

When she came to the opening, she saw that the children that were not there with her to begin with were standing together and not running. Some were getting yelled at, but they didn’t say a word in response as if they were unable to speak, and Blur knew that they were. There weren't very any children that decided not to run, but it was enough to be noticeable. Blur looked around her at…

    Being one of the only latino families in the community of Medford, I grew up aware of the fact that I wasn’t as similar as my classmates around me. By the time I had been old enough to understand this, I had already received subtle hints and jokes that referred to my race. It didn’t bother me then, until I was aware of the assumptions that came with it. In the summer before 2nd grade, the most talked about event was “Sign Up Day”. It was a day in which we could go and choose our extracurricular…

    I remember seldom things in life. Maybe my horrible memory can be attributed to the thousands of Diet Coke I drank as a kid and their alleged nasty side effects to memory. Maybe it’s attributed to my tendency to focus on the minute details and not the whole picture. Or maybe it is just a personal choice, a personal decision to ignore what life has brought me and to somehow use the bits I can recall to construct some fairytale. I wish that this process would have happened when I felt like I was…

    Never Too Weak To Stand For Yourself “CREAK”, the bus door opened and I waited as I watched all of the children struggling to get out. There is only one way I feel… I don’t want them to go. Every day I see them get off the “special needs” bus and get laughed at and see the fingers pointed straight at them, it’s ridiculous. You would have thought that tenth graders would have learned by now that bullying and harassment is childish, but apparently not. It’s amazing how much potential the…
