I am a Haitian-American girl who was brought into this world by a much-to-loving mother and raised by my siblings. I am a poised young woman that loves to be challenged. I have gone through a lot of difficulties in my life that's changed me in a very positive way. Without my father around, I felt that I was missing something from my life but it also influenced me to do the best without much help from him. I had a lot of problems with my mother, creating a major problem between us. My mother is the only person that I know that thinks negatively of me but all of her negative energy has pushed me to do anything possible to prove her wrong.I've gone through things that people wouldn't think that I went through that really affected my life. One experience that I had was when I was chilling with my friend at a park. I had called my friend, Isiah to met up and chill with his friends. By the time that I had gotten there, it was about 6p.m. He told me to wait for him at Suns Pizza at the intersection of Blue Hill Avenue and Talbot Avenue. Sitting patiently at a seat, a group of black dudes come in and start making a lot of noise. I overhear them talking about some boys that they got "beef" with. One dude said, "Yo man. I just seen the n**** that we got drams wit. Yeah, I seen him ridin' in a red car …" As he was talking, the rest of the boys were crowding around a heavy set dude asking him what they should do but he was too busy looking at me. He tried to show off to me by trying to tell them what to do. As he was doing that, Isiah came in and sat next to me.
