BC: Scars are like memories, and tattoos. When you fall, when your heart breaks, and when your best friend turns her back on you, it leaves a scar that can hurt every-time you think about it. It's a memory that is stuck in your head. It's in the past, but it comes back and bites. It's a tattoo because its a memory that hurts, but doesn't disappear. It never does. When you see it so vividly, you sometimes regret what led to the scar that is a memory that leaves an imprint in your life's history.

3: I have experienced many challenges that vary from very difficult to just a moderate challenge. My family is a very mixed family, of adopted kids and birth kids, I am the oldest living at home and I have six younger siblings. I have had a difficult life by being taken away from my parents in 2003 with my three sisters. I was put into a foster home for four years then I was adopted in 2008 my two little sisters were adopted with me and my older sister moved to the states. I was in a new family in a new town, knowing only my two younger sisters. Within another two and a half years my parents adopted three boys to go with the four kids they already had. That was a hardship, the oldest of the boys was aggressive and controlling, but now he is sweet and gentle. So most of the challenges that I have had to face I went head on into them and came up on top.
4: I like many things, such as working hard, and helping people. I enjoy working with children and their parents. I dislike many other things, including: dishonesty, disrespecting people and their environment, and laziness.
5: I am gifted in sciences and math; I wish to become a pediatrician, so that I can help children with their medical problems. I love to spend time with kids, and I have a way with speaking to them as though they are my equal, because in my mind every person is equal, no matter their age, gender, sexual orientation or race.
6: My mentor would be my Drama teacher, Mrs.Yamaoka. She has taught me to express myself in a new way, to get over my shyness and show who I am, through acting. She is one of my favourite people to be around she is always upbeat and helpful.
11: What you get by achieving your goal is not as important as what you become by achieving your goal.
