On this day, I left behind everything that brought me down and I took control of my life and my happiness. I left my boyfriend of one year, I left the people who never were there for me, and I took control. As much of a rollar coaster as it was, it was all worth it.
My best friend gave birth to a baby boy, who I consider my nephew. He means so much to me and I'd do so much for him. When his father left, I stepped up and have done everything I can to support my best friend as Aiden grows up.
I was in Cedar Rapids maybe a week before the flood of 2008 hit. When the flood hit and I saw the TV broadcast of what Czech Village looked like, it was so weird. It somewhat hit a tender spot, so I went and helped sandbag.
Hurricane Katrina has a huge impact. It destroyed so much, causing so much money, so much pain, death, everything you could imagine. It put a really big indent in our generation.
When my cousin died, it was kind of a reminder that tragedy happens to anyone and everyone, not just once, but multiple times in life. It's a daily reminder that safety is so important.
When I was in fifth grade, I met Angelica. She has been my best friend ever since. We've been inseperable for six and a half years. She's one of the most positive influences in my life. She's like a stable support for me and it's everything I've needed.
In New York City, New York, two American planes were crashed into the Twin Towers, which was the beginning of a war for us.
When my dad died, I was only seven. Losing him was the hardest thing I've gone through, but it's built me into a strong and independent person. It really made me open up my eyes to the world.
I wasn't even a month old yet, but it definitely had an impact on my family. My brother was two at the time and witnessed a lot of the flood waters, as my dad sandbagged in Coralville.
I was born.
