Rocking To My Own Strum
by Zhi (Mililani), age 12
My positive substance is guitar. I like how the sounds are calming. I don’t like loud rock. It took two years of work and it paid off. The effort really meant something to me. Another substance that I have is math. I was in a math program and reading program for almost four years now. I am doing 8th grade math now when I am only in 6th grade. It really makes me look back and see the progress. This shows that if you really try you can achieve your dreams. It makes me continue to improve my work and keep my grades high.
