I go to high school. I go to predominately white schools so I have had teachers that think just because the color of my skin that I'm lesser than other people. They will try not to put me in these higher education classes but I have a 4.4 GPA. I tell them that I can do that and I can prove it to them and I get into these higher classes and I'm at the top of my class and I just prove it to them. I just prove to them and show them that just because the color of someone's skin does not mean that they are lesser.
My goal for career wise, I want to be a neurosurgeon so it just gives me the energy and the drive that I need to get there. Anywhere you go there is always going to be people that try to bring you down or say that you can't do something but to me that is just energy that I need to actually get there and prove to them that I am able to do it.
I have lots and lots of stuff animals. I have this giant teddy bear that is the size of me that I just absolutely love. His name is Tedsen that my dad got for me. When I have rough days I kind of just like to cuddle with him.
