Life can take people in different twists and turns. One little incident can change the course of a person's being. Even with these changes, it is how one deals with them that can make them stronger. I have faced challenges that have changed me, but I am continually trying to overcome them. At first everything was perfectly fine during my one year attendance at Twin Oaks Elementary School. That was until the passing of my mother in early two thousand-two. My parents had never married; they did not even live with one another. I was originally living with my mother, but when she was diagnosed with breast cancer I moved in with my aunt. After her passing a drawn out custody battle preceded and I was finally handed over to my father in late two thousand-two. That change prompted yet another change; I had to change locale. This is when I moved to Albany. Since my father worked a strange schedule at Procter & Gamble I moved in with another aunt in Dougherty County. This led to the transition between three different abodes; my dad's, his sister, and my mother's sister house. I would stay with my mom's sister every other weekend, and stay at my other aunt's house when my dad had to work the night shift and with my dad when he's off. After the details were finalized I enrolled into Radium Springs Elementary School for my fourth grade year. During my 2002-2003 stay there I won multiple awards for my academic achievements and physical ability. Later changing transferring to Lincoln Elementary for my fifth grade year I kept my grades up.
