First I was 12 years old When I started to work. My dad was never home, My brothers were already married. So it was only me, my younger brothers, and my mom. That’s why I had to work to help my mom. Since we didn’t have any other source of money. The money I got I have to give to my mom so she could buy food. Even the money was not enough it helped a little bit.
Second: When I started the first year of middle school. I had to pay for my tuition and books. which it got more harder related to money. I worked in the mornings and in the afternoon I went to school. That was the only way I could continue going to school. Three years went fast, with a lot of sacrifices I finished the middle school. After that I registered in La Preparatoria what is here High School. There got more expensive to pay for tuition and books. It was so expensive. No matter how hard I worked money was not enough anymore. I took two semesters and I had to quit, I had no choice.
The main reason I moved here is because this is the place with better oportunities. I want to be someone in life. I want to be someone that makes me feel proud of myself. I really want to become a nurse and improve my english as much as I can. Also I have three kids that are my motivation. I want to offer them a better future. I wanat them to go to college. I really like school and I am a hard worker. I know I can do it. And only way is to work hard so I can keep my dream come true.
