A life changing Experience
In life everyone faces life changing events. Some changes are for the good and some for the bad. My life changing event was not achieving my high school diploma when I graduated. I failed the state standard test by a mere two points. I knew at that moment no high school diploma meant no college, and no career. I have to make a change.
Shortly before graduation my Guidance Counselor called me into his office and he said “Ms. Sainvil I have some good and bad news.” I became nervous and anxious to hear what he had to say. “Ms. Sainvil, congrats you’ll be graduating and walking the stage.” “But you will not be receiving a diploma.” I became emotionally distrust, and begin to cry.
That day I went home to give my parents the bad news. Looking at their faces you could see that they were disappointed. At that moment I knew I had to make a change. I wanted my parents to very proud of my accomplishments. After speaking to my parents, I went back to the school and spoke with my guidance counselor to find out what can I do to obtain diploma.
I re-registered to retake the state standard test. Passing the state standard test seem a whole lot more challenging than planned. I purchase multiple study materials and studied like there’s no tomorrow. After taking the state standard test multiple time I finally got a passing score. Two weeks later I received my high school diploma.
In life you face many changes it’s how you handle the change that makes a difference. For me this event has made me a stronger and a positive person. I now have my high school diploma. My next step in life is to begin college and pursue my dream in Nursing or a crime scene investigator.
