The last couple of years have been long and very stressful for me, as they have for everyone my age. No matter what, everyone has experienced many of the same "teenage" circumstances as I have and has dealt with them in their own way. As a personal participant in this "game", we call life, I would say I always work hard for what I want but even harder for what I need, I find education in this case a “need.” That is just my view on things in life, too bad, most people don’t see it the same as I do. “ Daughter no matter what happens you need to stay focused and worry about your education first, because education is the key to success and success is everything” were the words of my father before being indicted.Every day I would go on thinking about the words my father preached to me, I was only a near teenager preparing for high school at the time of the incident, so I really didn’t know how powerful those words were.
