As a newer student to the East High family, I’ve been asked the question “Who are you?” a number of times. The answer to your question could come from many different perspectives. Everyone grows and changes over time meaning everyone has their own picture to paint including myself.
My name is Dyanna Garcia. I’m an only child to the most caring and hardworking mother. She is my motivation in life. My mother has raised me to be successful, eager, and selfless. Without her I would be completely lost. She is the reason I am the way I am and I could never be happier. My mom graduated from Edison High school and took up on her passion for hair. She now manages a hair salon and continues to put her all into her passion. From watching her over the years it's taught me that if I put the work in I can be whoever I want to be.
I’m finally a senior attending East High school. As a student I would consider myself very mature and independent. I wake up to go to school and get the work done. I’ve been raised to over achieve in any way I can. I strive for excellence and honestly very happy with the academic achievements I have earned so far. I’ve taken an interest in the medical field for my future. My goal in life is to become a surgeon. I find the human body fascinating and take a high interest into learning more about it. All the hard work from over the years definitely will pay off, it's just a matter of time.
In my free time I enjoy listening to music, playing sports, and walking my three dogs. Personally, music goes a long way for me. Depending on what mood I’m in, I usually always have a song or playlist to match. When I’m sad or down about something, music is always to the rescue. Being active can also be a way for me to get my mind off things. I love playing softball and volleyball. Taking a walk in nice weather with my dogs can be refreshing for the mind too.
Overall, I can say I’m happy to be the person I am today. The journey continues and there will be many adjustments and bumps in the road but at the end of the day I would never ask for a different life. The next chapter of my life starts soon and I can’t wait to see what life brings me.
