I was homeschooled from Pre-K until dual enrolling in college. My whole life I felt that I was not good enough, because I had trouble reading and always struggled with math. I would cry because I could not hear how words fit together or understand fractions or my times tables. I never thought I would make it to college. I never thought I could do anything because of my struggles. But one day when I was about nine years old and reading McGuffeys reader with my mom; I understood the words. We found that I was a whole word reader. I understood words best when I could see how they fit together into the whole story. The same went for math; when I could see the problems fit into real life I understood them best.

For my last year of high school, I dual enrolled at Athens Tech. That was a huge challenge for me because I never thought I would make it into college. I choose to study Early Childhood Education. I did not know what I wanted to do with my future, but I knew I wanted to work with children. A year and a half later I finished with my Certificate in Early childhood education and transferred to Emmanuel College to study Psychology because I want to work with those who have been abused.

Now I am a Junior at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Ga. I am a peer-mentor and part of my title is a co-teacher in the freshmen classes. I also volunteer as a mentor/tutor at a local elementary school. Ive been babysitting/nannying for the last five years around Athens and Royston, Ga. This past semester I proved to myself that I could finish College Algebra with an 89.2%. I still babysit for professors at my college and children are a huge part of my life. I want to help those children who had trouble reading with myself and those who feel like I cannot do it. With my studies in psychology, I like to find out someone learns before teaching them. Because everyone learns differently and learning needs to be fun before it can fully be taught and absorbed.
