I’ve made bad decisions that resulted me to ending up at P.U.L.S.E. High School.

From third grade to my junior year I went to private school, basically my whole life. I was always a good student, always had good grades, and was well liked in school by the majority of the people who attended the school.

One day I decided to change all that. It was for girls and baseball. At my old school, baseball was my favorite sport so I wanted more competition by moving in a new division by going to a new school. Another reason why was my school lacked girls, and I was young at the time, so I wasn’t thinking, which caused me to make a decision that I regret at the end of the day

I decided to transfer to public school. That was the worst mistake I’ve ever made. I’ve never adjusted to public school, and I had a extremely hard time trying to pass any classes because I wasn’t comfortable at all. I was stressed out and people doubted that I would even finish school, which just motivated me to finish school and better myself.

One time, for example, my guidance counselor had a facial expression one day that gave me the impression that she didn’t believe in me and that I was never going to finish school, which motivated me to prove people wrong by finishing high school at P.U.L.S.E., and move on to bigger and better things to do in my life.
