Both of my parents grew up in Haiti, so it's kind of hard to sign up for things at school because they haven’t lived doing it. So I’ve found myself to be really independent taking care of myself at school. I'm the oldest in my family and my parents are a little bit older than other kids' parents my age. Because of that, I'm excited to help my little brothers whenever they need help with something because sometimes I really needed someone to look up to, to help me do things kids do my age.

I remember in 8th-grade middle school I got a C in Algebra 1, and my dad was really disappointed because he wants me to get good grades. He gave me this talk that changed the way I look at school forever. He made me promise not to get Cs and then after that I got A's and B's in 9th grade and I feel like that I really changed my perception because I really thought that I wouldn't be able to get that.
