I never graduated high school because I’ve attended over five different high schools. Through most of high school I was on the right path. I was involved in sports and maintained a 2.7 grade point average. Everything changed when my mother sent me to live with my father in Oakland, CA. It was a dramatic change from southern California’s San Andreas region. I went to Fremont High; I don’t need to say much but if you attended a school in Oakland, you know what to expect.
As I got used to my new surroundings, I slowly went down the wrong path. I started ditching class, flirting with girls when I went to class, and I started smoking. As high school went by I was doing so much that I was supposed to, and put myself way behind. I had to go get my GED so I went to East Oakland Youth Development Center.
EOYDC has helped me get the education I need to succeed and take care of my family(I am a new father). I’m glad I have the support from my excellent teacher, Ms. Anana and I hope college is as great as EOYDC.
