A Memory I’ll never forget
Do you ever look back at a time in your past and think, “Wow, I actually did it?” Looking back at my senior year in high school, I can tell you that 's one thing I 'll never forget. It not only made me the person I am today, it also prepared me for the real world. During this year, I was able to experience a ton of different things. I was able to purchase my own car, receive my Nursing Assistant Certification, and most importantly receive my diploma. Senior year was the hardest years of my life, but I wouldn’t change a thing.
