My oldest sister is now 24 years old, married, and a mother of a 1-year-old boy. When she graduated from Bravo Medical Magnet High School she found herself a job at Bank of America.

Her reason for stopping school was not because she wanted to be “freed” from it but because she believed working was a better path for her to take. My second oldest sister was never a big fan of school.

In 1918 the ten Boom family took in the first of many children they would unofficially adopt” (New World Encyclopedia).

She knew they would not hire her at the age of sixteen, so at her interview she altered her appearance to seem as old as eighteen. She passed the exam and was given the position.

So who’s really the victim? In fact, the real problem is we are not looking at the entire situation. Instead we decide to just put forth our opinions and feelings about immigration without really taking into consideration what would the United States be without it.

Part 1 At one point in high school my grades were below par which didn’t really make my parents happy. They decided to enroll me into a tuition center where may other kids take tuitions during the school holiday. One week in, I didn’t have a single friend, probably because I’ve always been a really shy person. I sat outside reading before my morning class. I looked up and noticed this girl was moving towards me, she engaged into conversation with me and then told me she thought I was real good looking and that definitely was an ego booster, she then suddenly left and I never saw her again because that was my last summer school class.
My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.

Now I am still here at CM&I , I supposed to be a summer graduate if everything goes as planned. Once I finish high school I plan on signing up for the air
