I have very much devoted my life to getting an incredible education while I have the chance. I came to America not knowing how to count from one to ten and having the inability to write in my native language, as well as English. Back at home people were closed minded, not because of the stupidity but because of the limited resources available, and they didn't know there is a great life you can have without having to farm from noon to late evenings. I lived in a small village, so there was only one school and many people did not consider the learning. Therefore, knowing my background has made learning an important value from both perspectives. I learned to enhance a value lesson from it; to make the best of the chances I have today being in America and given the choice to go to school. Especially knowing that I am the first in my family to go to college and receive an Associate and Bachelors degree motives me to go to school no matter what the obstacles might be.
Today, after six years of being in school continuously, I have improved my writing and communications skills. I have made so many friends in the process at Arlington Senior High since my Freshmen year, and where I will attend as a senior this fall. I am very much involved in my school. I am in the Multicultural Encouragement Program for Minorities and National Honor Society, which has connected me to the community in terms of allowing me to volunteer for the community.
When I am not at school I stay home and help my family take care of
the children. I sometimes hang out with my friend but not as often,
just because they seem to be busy and everyone try to find their process
in life when they are not cramming for a test they need to take today
for Biology for example( just a little side joke). I love to read books
they help me think more. Lucky for me I am working this summer and after
MACCESS I will be volunteering at Dorothy Day Center for the homeless.
Best of all the Professors were very helpful they gave us college tips.
