How did you experience school in elementary, middle, and high school?
From what I remember, my experience in elementary school was fun. This was the time of my life where I did not have to worry much about tests or essays. I learned how to distinguish between many things. For example, I learned about the different letters of the alphabet and numbers. I remember that I loved anything that had nothing to do with mathematics. I loved reading, science, and especially the hands on activities like arts and crafts. I remember those special holidays were the entire class was filled with decorations and we did tasks that were related to that holiday and the class had to share and give gifts.

I wanted to strongly make friends and I remember that pleasing them was the only way to get them to like me. This was the time were I was rebellious towards my teachers and the school. I remember being problematic and always receiving detention because I never listened to my teachers and I always broke the rules from school. My experience was not good that I almost did not graduate from middle school. My experience was the way it was because I wanted to be liked.
High school was quiet different. I decided to make a total 360 degree turn. I can say that my experience was good. I cared more about school than trying to fit in. It was here were I know that I found my own identity and I did not care what other peers thought about me.
