After all the pain and sorrows I have suffered through, I believe I will become a better person in the future. I am closing a huge chapter in my life by saying goodbye to some of the people who have dealt me wrongly. I may be saying some heartfelt goodbyes to the people I care about too, but it is nice to know that it is only temporarily for a few years. I am glad that all the work I have done has paid off and I am now going to become a UCSC student. I am so proud of the work I have achieved. It doesn’t matter how long it takes to get where you want to go because all that matters is that you make it there and you are happy. From this day forth, I am going to look forward to all the new adventures I may face in the great unknown cities of Santa Cruz and San Francisco! Hopefully up there, I may be able to find myself again and to become the strong, independent person I used to be.
