Getting away as soon as she could was her number one goal. Moving from Milwaukee to Arizona to go to college and then to study abroad in New Zealand was an easy transition. But nothing has ever came as easy to her as the three most valuable things in her life, her happiness with being settled in Colorado, her husband Jeff, and her four year old daughter Freya who she considers to be her greatest accomplishment in life. Currently teaching at Denver School of Science and Technology: College View High School. Teaching 9th grade Composition. She is very content with life. Loving reading, writing, and a glass of wine when things get a little too hectic, those three things became very needed while just dealing with the sudden unpredicted death of her mother this past October, who got stung by a bee on a random Monday, had no known allergies to bee stings, went it too shock, and passed away a couple hours
After reading our pages for this week, and reflecting on my own songwriting and reading about other songwriters it helped me see again why I love this so much! I ended up really relating to a lot of what was stated in these first 50 pages. Where I am from which is called Bloomfield Hills, everyone their seems to be living in their own bubble. Everyone calls it The Bloomfield Bubble. Not joking its a real thing. I’m sure you have heard about my area that I is a very wealthy area snd everyone is materialistic and rude. That is true for those selected few but, other than the few exceptions the rest of us are just like everyone else. One of the big things that is a “normal” situation that happens after you graduate from high school is that you

At twenty-two years old my younger-self had previously pictured me in an entirely different place. I never imagined living in Texas, I’m originally from Chicago, and that’s where I thought I would reside. I thought I’d be graduated from college already, but fate had a different plan. And never in a million years did I think I would become a drug addict; but I am, and you know what? It’s been the best thing that has ever happened to me, it’s something I’m truly thankful for now. See, all the things listed above may seem like negative things if you look at them from an outside perspective; however to me, they’ve changed me in ways I never thought possible just six months ago. Multiple circumstances have led me to this point, but a few stick

Hello I’m Jorge Laylle, but I’ve always been called Alex. I’ve lived in a little town called Hallsville ever since my family and had to evacuate Louisiana because of hurricane Katrina.

I attend a post-secondary institution right after high school; I received my Medical Assistance Certification from Star Technical Institute in Whitehall, PA.

Another event, which shifted my life forever, was accepting a marriage proposal at a young age and marrying in 1991. I made it clear from the beginning that my education was very important to me and marriage would not stand in the way of my pursuing post-secondary studies or even completing high school. When I announced my engagement due to my pregnancy I was, determine to complete all my studies to make a better life for my son.

My last job I went back to the medical field as that was the quickest job I can find in my area that was hiring. I was so nervous due to not knowing anyone and having to relearn everything all over
I am Aliyah Shaleese Crawley. I’m just a small town girl. I was born in Fayetteville on September 18, 2001 and was raised in Lake Waccamaw with my mom, dad, and older sister, Amanda. As a baby, I was always bouncing on my bed, looking over the rail. I was constantly smiling with a red rash under my nose from allergies.When I upgraded out of my pen, I was happy playing with my blocks on the regular making houses with them for my dolls play with and sometimes, I'd go organize the tupperware cabinet. I'd sit in front of it, to surprise my mom, even putting a child lock on it so she couldn't get in it.
My name is Anna Lawrence. I have lived in Boston, Massachusetts my entire life. I lived with my mother, father, and our house staff. Our family was quite rich, although Mother did not allow me to say rich, she would say that we were‘“well-off.” Because we were well-off, I had many nice things:. Pretty dresses, toys, and plenty of books. However, I could not seem to be bothered with these things very often, I had much rather listen to the topics of conversation between grownups.

A few years had past since my family had become a statistic, when my sister and brother left home on their way to their own goals in life. This new change produced even a greater effect on me than did the departure of my father. Now came the time where I decided if no one else had to stay in the family, neither did I. I took this opportunity to become closer to my friends and their families hoping to become more welcome there than I did at home. It was not long after my constant deviation from what was left of my family that my mother decided she was going to keep me out of the house for extended periods of time. Now the time had come for me to really find my path in life.
I majored in English in the Humanities and Social Sciences college at Rowan University. At the same time, I studied a number of courses in the discipline of secondary education. I enjoyed studying teaching but early in my undergraduate career I determined that teaching English at the high school level was not my desired life path. Rather, teaching English Literature as a professor was my life's purpose. As an undergraduate, I have taken a deluge of class varying from children's literature to Toni Morrison studies in an attempt to further understand literature. Concentrating on the ways in which modern literature apprehends the American experiences within the written word. At the point of graduation, I accomplished a
