My Big Mistake
As I think back in my life, I remember when I choose to drop out of school. Dropping out of school was the biggest mistake of my life. I wish I can undo the mistakes that I choose in my past. I was only fourteen years old when I drop out of middle school.

Growing up in the projects with a single mom and no income was very tough on my family. I was being an ignorant teenager decided to hang out in the streets for comfort. Life took a different turn for me. I started hanging out with the wrong people. I ended up in a lock up facility at the age of fifteen. I had so much anger inside towards everyone especially my mom. I blamed her for my mistakes.

As time has gone bye I have realize that there’s more to life than hanging out and partying all night long. I have come to understand that my mother wasn’t at fault for my decisions that I choose. She was a single mom trying to raise four girls on her own. Being a mom myself at the age of fifteen I can relate how hard it is to take care of a family by myself.

Being an adult I am trying to change my life. I am attending college to better my self and the future of my daughter. I am trying to be a good roll model for her. I want her to do better in her life and make better choices for herself.
