My Life Has Been Tough. As the Years went by,You Wouldn’t Believe that, as me being a young lady, would make it through; But my motivation is my Grandmother. My family and I go by her name Pauline and she has been a big help for my mother to help raise me. Now y’all would say, “Isn’t she ‘post to have a father figure in her life?” Well my father decided to leave my life when I was a baby. He used to come in and out of my life and I couldn’t really understand why he done it. But, I see when you become an alcoholic it changes you. That’s what happens to my father, so he never ended up being around in my life, but my grandmother decided to step up and become more like a mother/father figure in my life. She has helped raise me up to become the woman I am today. She has always motivated me to follow my dreams, my goals to accomplish in life. But Long story short, my grandmother passed from cancer when I was 17yrs old. And Yeah I took it very hard. The next day I had school and I couldn’t really focus or do any work. I had the Principal and Teachers try and figure out what’s wrong, they considered me as their favorite student so I explained to them what was the problem and they felt so bad but then they felt so motivated from my story about me and my Grandmother, the bond we have together. Before my grandmother had passed, I promised her that I would finish graduating from high school. I kept my word ever since. Now I am 19 years old, still trying to succeed. My life is a big world out there, but along I take my grandmother with me wherever I go. I always can feel her presence inside of me. I wouldn’t consider myself lucky but I consider myself as a strong minded independent young lady and I thank God for my grandmother.
