Life Event: The significant, uplifting, positive experience/event from my life would be graduating high school.
Explanation: Graduating high school was a challenge for me. I had my daughter half way through my junior year in high school. I continued high school after having my daughter I also played football but did my school work from home for the second half of my junior year. I then attended high school full time my senior year. I was completely responsible for my daughter. It was probably the hardest thing I have done in my life knowing I had a child and to make through high school with no help playing on the team her mother not around for to help me. I had to work hard to make sure she was well taken care of I made it out of no way she had everything she needed and still try to focus on school work. I graduated with honors I also had scholarship to attend college to play football but I didn't wont to leave her behind.
Reflection: Graduating high school and being able to walk across that stage holding my daughter pride made me feel very proud of myself. I felt like I could and would make it in this big world. It was a very special moment in my life. At one point I didn't think I would make it and some others didn't as well but I showed my self and everyone that I did it!Not only that a lot people told me it was hard to be a father and attend school I told them if your mind on it you will achieve it.
