Growing up was kind of rough. My mom and dad always in and out of the house, i was always in charge of my three siblings because of course i am the oldest. One day the DCFS came and took my sisters and i out of our house. We were in a children's home for about three days. That's when my dads sister came and got us and took us home we finished school out here then after that summer my other aunt (my moms sister) took the two oldest me (14 at the time) and my sister (12 at the time) and the other one had the two younger ones (2 and 7). In the beginning of August my aunt adopted my two younger sisters, and pretty soon my sister and i will be getting adopted by my newly married aunt and uncle. I believe family is everything.
Inspiration has been a big part in my life for a long time. When my mom was in and out the house as a child my sisters really only had me and they all looked up to me. They needed me.. And i was there to inspire them. i would remind them that they could be anything and do anything they wanted. That's was Ruby did for me. She made me believe that i could do anything. And i will do anything.
Throughout my life me and people i know and love have suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts. When i heard that Brighton High school now has a HOPE squad i jumped right to the opportunity to be on it. I love being able to help people and just be there for people who need someone they might not have at home or in a friend group. I've always wanted to be that person that can be someone that people can go to and when i got the call to the office to get my letter i was more than thrilled that people voted for me to become apart of HOPE squad.
When I was first in middle school I didn't have the best experiences. I failed basically all of my classes, I had terrible friends and terrible choices. When I came to Brighton I knew that I could better my life, make it the life I wanted, now I'm on track to graduate, I'm planning to major in Phycology at Utah Valley University and start my life from then on.
