Be an Example for My Daughter

I have never liked school as far as I can remember. From 3rd grade and up, I didn't have anyone to help or support me. My grandmother raised me, so she didn’t know what was going on with my homework and classwork. She would get constant phone calls about me not doing work and skipping class. I struggled a lot in school and had no one to reach out to. The teachers all had favorite students. They picked and chose who they wanted to look out for. I wasn’t one of those kids. I tried night school when I turned 19, but then my grandma got sick, so I missed school a lot to care for her. Then at 20, I got pregnant with my daughter, and I only needed ten more credits to graduate, but I had a C-section, and I couldn’t get enrolled back into the program because I was 21. So I’ve been working at random jobs to get by bouncing around to different places. This diploma will push me to start a career, further my education, and set an example for my daughter. It is never too late to improve and start making the right steps to be a better version of yourself.
