High school is awesome! We have not posted in a while. Coco has been getting settled in and adjusted to her new school. We can now officially say that it’s one of the best things that has ever happened to her. Coco races smiling on to the bus every morning. Coco is spelling and learning and being treated like a 14 year old. She has the most supportive team we could ever wish for. They see her for who she is.
Coco wrote this short piece as a response to a list of questions about reaching for your dreams. This assignment was part of the preparations for the class reading of The Alchemist.
Dare to Dream
DREAMING IS WHAT HAS SUSTAINED ME MY WHOLE LIFE. MY BIGGEST DREAM HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO COMMUNICATE. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS COME TRUE? YOU DREAM EVEN BIGGER. MY BIGGEST DREAM NOW IS TO BECOME EDUCATED. THIS DREAM DOES TAKE A LOT OF COURAGE FOR A PERSON LIKE ME BECAUSE MANY ADULTS I MEET DO NOT FIND ME COMPETENT. THESE ADULTS ARE THE OBSTACLE TO MY SUCCESS. EVERY DAY I WORK HARD AT THIS. MY FAMILY IS KEY TO MY ACHIEVING THIS GOAL. THEY MAKE IT ALL POSSIBLE. I FEAR FAILURE A THOUSAND TIMES A DAY. THAT’S ANXIETY THAT PLAGUES ME. NOT ONLY DO MY PARENTS SUPPORT ME BUT THEY DEVOTE THEIR LIVES TO MY DREAM TOO.
Coco did this at home and her mother writes in caps.
