Life in Colorado instead of Houston, Tx.
Life for me in Houston,Texas isn't anywhere near the life I have up here in Glenwood Springs Co. I came from punishments for every little thing to just getting grounded. I came from being told you're nothing, you're worthless. There's nothing for you in school because you can't stay it. My father passed away on June 13th, 2013. I had to move with my guardians because I wasn't 18. I didn't want to go but I had no say in it. I didn't like it at first, but when I came out here, it was a different story. I had an opposite experience thanks to Yampah Mountain High School. This school really changed my life. It gave me what I like to think of as a second chance in education and the reality of life. I haven't always been the one who does right everyday, but by going to Yampah I learned I had the potential to make the right decision. The decision that would get me somewhere in life, somewhere that I want to be and not just a figment of my dreams.
