All my life I have been thinking of what I am planning to do with my life and what I would like to learn more about when I grow up. Well today I know what I want to do and what career I want to take as a grownup. The career I would like to take is to become a neonatal nurse. I have wonder that what I like to do the most is to take care of babies and what better to become a neonatal nurse and take care of new born babies and what treatments I need to give to the babies. I would also like to become a neonatal nurse because I believe it is bautismo to see a new baby is being taken care of with no chance or gettin harmed.
Hi my ñame is Maria D. Barajas Gonzalez and I wad born in Guanajuato,Mexico. I came to the United States when I was 5 years old and I have been living in California for ten years. When I first arrived to California I lived in Oxnard, CA. It was a very safe city and i lived theta for 4 years and then my family decided to move to Oakland, CA. I have been living here for 6 years. I am 13 year old girl who next year is going to high school. Right now I go to a small middle school call Urban Promise Academy. I am a very quiet shy girl who wishes to sometimes come our of her shell and be who I want to be. What it is true is that today I came out of my shell to tell you about my family,challenges,why I am a leader and as you already read about why I whant to become a neonatal nurse and why I whant to gO to collage.
Life in Oakland is very diffrent from Oxnard they both are wonderful but I feel that life in Oakland has made me expediente a lot of challenges. One of many challenges was that my English was not as good as the other students in my class and has to spend 5 years in ELD classes. Today I am in 8th grade and I do not have to attent to ELD classes. Last year it was my lastima year to gO to a.m.boost, a special program for students who need help on English and learn how to write and speak it well laso know as ELD clases. I had to wake up early in the morning go to school before it started and go to my ELD clas. Last year I graduated and this year in 8th grade I dont have to go no more. Clases now are better and easy for me to understand and I am able to speak it. Another challenges I had in life was when I had an interview to apply to go to Washington DC. At the end.of the week I got the wonderful news that I was going to go to the trip. Out of two hundred students only seven got to go and I was one of those students. I had to collect give hundred dollars in about four months it was hardware because me and my family had to collect that money in orden to go to the trip. At the end of those four months I was able to collect that money and I got the best experience of my life. I visit a lot of new places that I never imagine I was going to see like museams and more.Those for me were the most hardest challenges I had to overcome.
Now I have not talo about my family but my family is the most wonderful thing it has happened to me. With out them I would have never went to Washington DC. or made any of my dreams come true. Every person in my family is diffrent but they all have their own way to show love to my sister,brothers and me. Even tough my parents are divorced they never forge that they have the most important Job ,wich is being a parent. They are always there for me when something bad happens to any of my brothers they put their diffrences and come together to help us out.
What I like about Oakland is that not only I have learned how to take Challenges , but to also make museos a a strong and better leader to others. I believe that I am a leader bu a showing my brothers what stepsto take in life and how to overcome challenges. I also relieve that I am a leader because I show how to Respect people and also to fight for the things I believe in. A third reason is that my own family sees me as a leader because they believe I am a good example for my brothers. I am going to show my family to always tollos their dreams annd to never give up.
Now I believe that I should be able to go to College for All because I have shown that in the past that I can be a responsible when I went to Washington DC. Also because all my two and ahalf years that I have been at UPA I have never had problems with another students never gotten one single culture form. Also all my time in UPA I have received good gradesand good cOmments by teachers. What I do need to work on is to try alittle more hardware on my math work. hedores that I jet good grades only one time I got a 2.75 or 50. Thats some of the reasons why I shOuld go to College for all trip.
I feel that everything I have lived so far in my life is going to help me to overcome more challenges in life and is going to help me to go to College and to always believe in what I believe in. Never give up on what I thinking is fight for . In closing, when I grow up all I ask for is for my dreams to come true, to become a neontal nurse. To always have the support of my teachers and friends. I am a very positive person, therefor I Williams agujeta everything I set myself out to do in life.
