• Little Brother

    Little Brother
    On September 15 of 2015 after ten years of it just being me and my older brother, my little brother was born. Instantly, I would always want to play with him and be around him. As he would get older I would start teaching him more things as well as I would learn from him. He taught me how to be more caring and a little more responsible. It's been nice watching him grow and become his own little person. He's now 6 turning 7 soon and I couldn't be happier to call him one of my best friends.
  • Leaving the country

    Leaving the country
    This would be the first time I've left the country and the first time I would finally meet my grandparents that lived there. Upon arriving in Peru my grandparents and family were waiting for us at the airport with signs and balloons. It was nice meeting my grandparents and everyone else. We spent the entire time with my grandparents going to a lot of sightseeing places and meeting family. We now go as often as we can to see my grandparents and everyone and it's always such a nice time when we go
  • New house

    New house
    September of 2019 we had just bought a house. After living in an apartment my whole life I just couldn't believe it. I had a yard to play in and a pool to swim in. It was hard having to leave school with all my friends. Fortunately, I was able to spend my freshman and sophomore year with everyone. It was a big change from having to live in a city where everything is right around the corner to living in a small town where you aren't in walking distance of anything but I've learned to like it here
  • New friend?

    New friend?
    September 2020 we got a new addition into the family. Since we were finally all settled into our house my parents surprised me with a puppy. I was so happy because having lived in an apartment we were not allowed any pets and my parents wouldn't let me keep anything even small animals like fish. They knew I had wanted a dog since I was little. The longer Zoe (dogs name) was with us the more i loved her day by day. I can't go a day without her because ill miss her so much. She's my best friend.
  • New School

    New School
    After finishing my sophomore year at White Plains my parents decided it was time that they switch schools since we now moved to Brewster. I was nervous because it was a new place where I didn't know anyone and no one knew me. My first day was nerve wracking but I kept my head high because I knew it would go good. Now approaching the end of my first year here at Brewster High School and I have met so many awesome people. It eventually grew on me and I really like this school and everyone here.
  • Oui Oui

    Oui Oui
    Not long ago in November last year my family decided to take a trip to France. None of us had ever been anywhere but the US and Peru. After a long 8 hour flight we finally arrived. I couldn't believe it. I was literally in PARIS 20 minutes away from the EIFFEL TOWER. It was an amazing trip. We were in an entirely new country with an entirely different language. It was so cool seeing how different life and people were in France. It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to see where else we'll go.
  • Letting go

    Letting go
    My uncle was a second father figure to me. He was one of the nicest kindest people I ever met. Unfortunately, on December 9th, 2021 he passed away in an accident. This took a huge toll on me. I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that he was just gone. I couldn't shake it off my head. I missed two weeks of school that week. It took a long time to accept it and process it because that would mean he was really gone. Now 6 months later I have made peace with it and know he's in a better place.
  • 16th

    My 16th birthday was not the best but it was very eye opening. Here i was finally 16 and I couldn't believe it. With everything that had just happened it made me realize that although 16 isn't that old. It made me realize that I have come so far and that I'm getting older and that soon I'm going to have more freedom yet much more responsibilities. It feels liberating yet at the same time scary It also made me realize that if 16 years went by that fast that everything else is coming faster.
  • First Job

    First Job
    As I'm getting older I decided it was about time I get a job. I applied to several places and finally I chose to work at Decicco's it was a nice experience and place to work at. Everyone was welcoming and always included you and talked to you. I met a lot of nice people and enjoyed my time there. Unfortunately, I no longer work at Decicco's as I decided it would be better to focus on myself and not overwhelm myself. It was a great first job and I really enjoyed it.
  • Doctor Visit

    Doctor Visit
    April 29th, 2022 I was diagnosed with depression. I couldn't process what the doctor had told me and still almost a month later i'm still struggling to accept it. I've always felt this way but finally having an explanation brings all kinds of emotions. It's been difficult trying to come to terms with it but I finally feel that I am making progress. It is a part of who I am but it does not define me nor will i ever let it. I am still me just with a couple extra steps and I'm okay with that.
