One of my greatest opportunities was when I was offered a chance to apply for a newer school called HeLa...
When I was in eighth grade I was asked if I would like to apply to HeLa. I was told all about the new school and how I could probably do really well at that school , so that night I convinced my parents to let me apply. I was so excited! A lot more of my friends and I were hoping that we would all make it in. Every day the anticipation got worse and I didn't want to wait anymore.
A couple weeks later I got the acceptance letter… for a long time the letter just sat on my counter. I was too scared to open it because I didn't want to be disappointed. It took a lot of guts to open that letter… actually I just ended up asking asking my mom because my mom was done waiting for me to suck it up. Lol. Well I got accepted. Leading to this autobiography that i’m writing for my final.
So far I've been loving my time at HeLa and how this place has made me more mature and smart. I’m so happy and I can't wait to find more opportunities like this one. Also to be able to grow as a person and show what I can do.
