When 9th grade finally came, I was very excited about starting high school and hoped things would be different; however, it was not. I was bullied to the point that I would come home crying, and began to make wrong decisions such as hanging with the wrong crowd to be popular, and I was even sent to ISS once for getting into trouble. I was lucky to pass my grade.
When I started Odyssey Online Learning, things began to take a positive turn. I stopped hanging out with the wrong people, I met knew friends through the school and did not have to worry about any negativity such as bullying. I could choose when to do my school work, and could focus better on getting it done. Due to the positive reinforcement in the online live classrooms, I have been making better grades, enjoying my time with this school, and will finish the year with flying colors. I will graduate in June and I am looking forward to my future.
I have a very sweet, autistic four-year-old brother named Chase, whom I love dearly. I like to read and veg on Netflix. Some of my favorite shows are The Walking Dead, Gilmore Girls, and Supernatural. One fun fact about myself is that I lived in Mexico for 1 ½ years. Some advice I would give to another student would be work hard, stay on pace, and work out a schedule each day that works for you and stick with it. Don’t fall behind because it will be hard to catch up!
Audrey, we are so proud of you!!
