Growing up in a poverty stricken area of West Palm Beach, Florida, I was constantly surrounded by crime and drugs. Since my mother and older siblings participated in these crimes and I never knew my father, growing up was no easy task. This story is about the experiences that accompanied the dysfunctions in my home life. It is about my determination to take a different path in life, including becoming completely independent by my sophomore year in high school, graduating high school, and going to college. My past will always be a part of me and I will not forget where I came from, but it has also made me the strong person I am today and to make something great of the life I was given.
