A New Chapter Begins posted 9/21/2012


I was on the BTB website a few days to check the last time I blogged, which was February. Since then, a lot has happened! I have graduated from high school, applied to college, and become a City Year corps member. The last leg of my path to graduation was the toughest for me. I was confronted by many issues leading up to that point. Some of those issues almost deprived me of that accomplishment and the opportunities that are before me. I know now that some of the issues that arose during that time could have been avoided.

I also know that some may question my decision to wait a year before going college. They may even present me with all the statistics about those who wait a year between high school and college; to them I say that I have weighed all the options and I came to the conclusion that I would return because I have the determination, zeal, and passion to go to college. I also know that unlike others, I have a support system of people who wish me well, and who are willing to assist. I do not wish to disappoint my supporters, but most importantly, I do not wish to disappoint myself.

I know that there have been occasions in the past where a young person like myself may have been put in the spotlight, or on a pedestal, or whatever analogy you wish to use; have failed, and left people with a distaste or disbelief in humanity, where those people may not be inspired to help or support another young person. I know as human beings, we hate the feeling of disappointment and the defeat of ourselves or someone else. Though most situations in my past have been tumultuous, I have conquered them all. I do not want to disappoint myself and a lot of people have committed themselves to my success instead of my defeat.
After a conversation this past summer with my mentor, Ms.Vivian Flowers, I decided to join city year. City year is a service based educational non-profit. City Year partners with schools to combat the drop-out crisis and close the achievement gap. The main areas of focus for city year are attendance, behavior, and course performance. Those were some areas that I struggled with in school and wish that there had been City Year corps members to help at Barringer. Now that I've graduated and high school is over, I can look forward to my future as a learner and a leader.

I know that some may ask why I joined city year. The answer will be in my next blog entry. By the way, in City Year, that's what we call our "i serve" statements. And as always, remember to...
