My name is Jada it’s pronounced “Jay-da” in english, “yah-da” in spanish and hebrew.” My mother picked my name out of the bible. My middle name is the most unique name. Its “Ja-el” it’s also picked out the bible. I prefer to be called “Hael”  as my nickname. It means “kindness, beauty and art” and it is pronounced “HI-EL”. So my full name is Jada Hael Jones. The most general traits you should know about me is i’m shy, quiet, reserved, practical and really weird and mostly very witty. My worst traits is I worry a lot, I like to daydream a lot,  i get agitated easily and lastly i’m detached when it comes to my surroundings. I was born in Austin but I was raised in Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, and Oakdale Louisiana my whole life. We moved a lot in my family mostly because of poverty. I mostly was raised by my grandmother, my mother was out of the picture for a little period of my childhood. I lived with my grandmother since I was 7 to 15. But i decided I wanted a closer connection to my mother so i decided to go stay with her instead of staying with my grandmother. I thought it wouldn’t get along with my mom at all but we got closer as mother and daughter. We had this thing called mother and daughter day every Saturday. We would go out to eat and talk about things and goals.  We decided to come back to Austin because jobs in Louisiana was scarce.

I’m mostly good at typing, writing, and lastly playing violin. My imagination is so flexible and so creative that I can easily type out what i’m thinking about always. Orchestra is my comfort place and its where I connect how I feel and how to understand me as a whole. I enjoy reading about adventure and romance on wattpad when i’m on my me time. Also love listening to music four of my favorite artist is Blackbear, The neighborhood, and lastly, the chainsmokers. I have trouble coping with disasters in my life, so it motivated me to get good at something I love and that’s music.

This survey mostly focuses on dangers of communities and neighborhoods. I agree with them asking about young parents. I connect with this Item because they’re are so many young parents out there and some of them are struggling due to their on poor decisions. I believe that no teen should have a child or plan to have a child while they’re in high school.  Even though birth control has been made to prevent pregnancy. There young teen pregnancy is still a pregnancy. One of my friends decided to get pregnant while she’s in high school. But when she had the baby she realized that a baby is a big responsibility and babies also cost money.

I like music too! I use music to cope with a lot in my life as well. I play guitar and piano, however, I’m not in an orchestra or band. I am in my school’s concert choir. I agree that teen pregnancy is problematic and not the best choice, but something that confused me is are you arguing against teen pregnancy or teens having serious relationships? I personally think that serious relationships are fine as long as no one feels pressured or uncomfortable and they are being safe to try and prevent pregnancy and STDs/STIs. Obviously if someone is in a serious relationship, there will always be a risk, but I support most prevention methods.

Hi Jada. Your story is beautiful. I must say, the story about you and your mom getting closer warmed my heart. Music helps me with my problems too, but nothing helps me cope more than my mother. People get us through life, the good and the bad. However, orchestra is an excellent way to express yourself and it gives you goals. I’m glad you’ve found things that help you when you’re facing tough situations. Good luck and keep pushing through your problems. You’re a beautiful writer.

Hi Jada,
I think that music is a beautiful way to cope. I have gone through a number of personal problems and listening to and playing music is one of my favorite way to manage my emotions. I’m so glad that you feel the same way. I look forward to reading more of your beautiful writing.
