I am the girl
I am the women
who was born with a disability
whose been bullied, and use to contemplated about taking her own life .
Who always deemed herself as different
because she wasn't like everyone else
as she got older in types of different environments to adapt to them
That itself says leaps and bounds,
math was not her subject test from Board of Ed prove that
Although she change schools again into what she was suppose too be in
which by now she was an 8th grader
into a smaller setting it was weird because she went from a bigger private school
to an area to location to a new school that was smaller.
but I was bless with this teacher called Miss O'Brien
She believed in me and that made me believe in myself I was this hardworking little thing in 8th grade
I remember after already doing my homework
over lunchtime I would ask her
in the halls for more and more
and the more she gave me the more I tried.
9th grade same teacher different work and like I said it wasn't easy but I pushed forward.
10th grade my favorite teacher was gone I had someone new it felt awkward for me but
grade wise work wise I pushed through and my report cards reflect that.
11 and 12 th Grade I pushed more then ever could poured more then I ever could because I was the same person but different to.
Graduation My math teacher who I had originally came back for 11th I had her both those last two years remaining.
Finally 12 th grade I was given the award from her for hard work in math and school wise I was Hall of Fame on the wall in school by her too.
4 years after I'm still in college taking math again but just like back then I'm older I'm wiser and I have a professor that were unlike my other college professors who were never caring enough to push me forward like this one does
People telling you won't succeed or pass
things but if you look at it like that is them getting in your head
Yeah it will take me longer to get my degree in my major
I have failed in things and aspects of life
But still I stand and yes I have had to questioned myself if its worth the fight
But I have also learned I will be dammed if I let anyone take me out of the game.
Out of life's game,
I will be dammed if anyone tells me I can't do it
and I will be dammed if anyone stops me
my own future
my own but a better me
people have said I will fail but here I stand proving them wrong
in my own way and although it may not be there way
it is still a way.
My professor words I see you,
have made progress from
when I had you until now
and if it takes me us sticking together for the long hall
until you pass I'm fine with that
and my reply I wouldn't have any other way
or etc needs
that one person or teachers and even
professors to motivate them and even then ones to keep then chain going when they feel like falling
and if we, me , anyone can get that then we can do so much more.
we can be so much more .
who are a constant in my life and helped me
see this along the way
this is for you
thank you to my math teacher this semester and last semester thank you and see you soon.
Also for people who feel like this or are in this scenario I hope this somehow inspires you
Life has taught me that "Determination, Struggle, and Confidence is a virtue"
Motivation you are my drug, despite the struggles and the downfalls. I
will forever I fight on because of this motivation being instilled in me always forever more even when I crumble
