I was born and raised in mid-Manhattan. I’m good at soccer and I play most days. I also like to hang out with some of my friends after school, and i would only hang out with my friends if i had little homework, if i had a lot of homework or a project due, i wouldn’t hang out with my friends or do anything, the only thing i would do is school related, like staying after school, or going straight home to finish what i need to finish. I can be a responsible kid, only sometimes.
I treasure school but I’m not really good at staying focused. I intend to do all my work, and and when I feel like i’m not doing so good in class, or classes, i do stay after school or talk to my teachers on how i can raise my grades. At least, I used to — in the fall semester. This Spring, though, I haven’t been staying after school much. I guess because of the decisions I’ve made or make.
There are gangs in my neighborhood, and I do know this one kid, and for the question and to prevent problems, I’m not going to mention their name or anything personal information, but they are gang-involved. It’s their decision, not mine, I’m not going tell them what to do with THEIR life.
