During my childhood years, I was struggling with school that I was placed in special ed classes and a lot of people thought that I would not be motivated to focus on my education and my future.
During my years at Van Derveer Elementary school, I had a hard time adjusting myself in the class and my grades were not as good as they are today. But that didn’t mean that I would try my hardest.
