Determined

Ana Laura Gonzalez-Coria
Class of 2013
English

After my parents’ divorce, they decided to go into war using their children as weapons. Since I was the oldest I always had a responsibility. Throughout my junior and senior year I moved five times, and lost credits. I almost didn’t graduate but I managed to take a course my senior year and graduated. I also had to leave home in February 2008 and overcome obstacles to get where I am today. There have been many times in which I felt like quitting but my determination to succeed won’t let me give up.
