Who I am is a question I haven't given much thought about. But I have an idea of who I am. I am a fighter. It started at birth when I was born 2 months early with my intestines outside of my stomach. The doctors told my mother I have a very slight chance of living and I pushed through. I had many surgeries. I had to stay in the hospital for 3 months until they let my mother take me home. I am a miracle child.
If I had to list some words that describe me they would be passionate, smart, caring, loving, and goofy. Also I am a student, a friend, a son, and a brother.
As a student I am very hardworking and dedicated. I had a rough start freshman year of high school. I was excited to be in school and went to school for the fun of it. My grades weren't the best. I didn't really care. Sophomore year COVID hit and the whole pandemic changed my life. School was different. We had to work online, class was virtual. It wasn’t for me: I would join the class and go to sleep and not do any work. When I tried to do my work I was confused. I couldn't learn that way. I was stressed until COVID dialed down and school was hybrid back to in person learning. I could finally learn, my grades went up and I was on a roll.
That's when I grew up and became mature. My junior year I got all my work done, all my grades were good, I cared about my education and wanted to do better. I was responsible. As a friend I am very supportive. I always try to push my friends to do their best. I’m always there when they need me.
As a child and brother I'm annoying. I’m always messing around with my parents and siblings just goofing off. I'm big on family, family is very important to me. I spend a lot of time with my family. I have a strong bond with them and I know that they are always going to be there for me and support me and vice versa. I play basketball. Basketball has a huge impact on who I am because I started off so young. I practice, I work out, I do all I can to get better at the game.
The only thing that motivates me is my family. They push me to be the best version of myself and they always pick me up when I'm down. Family is just everything to me. I’m a senior in high school now and I found vision care interesting. This is my second year taking that class and I love it. When I graduate I want to go to college to become an optician. So who am I? I am me.
