Make Your Own Decisions. Don’t Let Other Control You
What I Have Learned
My Brother had a big impact he would always talked to me about anything. If something bad happened I could talk to him. He influenced me because he rubbed off on me he has a cocky attitude but I used that to my advantage and made myself confident in whatever choice I made. My brother is the reason I got into wrestling. Now wrestling takes my mind off things. Wrestling makes me keep my grades up so I can go to the meets.

When I was young I was told what to do and pushed around (Not Literally) by kids at school. I would do what they said because I didn't know any better. When I told my mom what was happening at school she told me to do what was best for me. I went to school and started doing my own thing and it was the right thing. That has shaped the way I am today I do what I think is best for me. Yea, a lot of the times I make mistakes but i'm human we always make mistakes; sometimes not as often as others but we all make mistakes.
In 3rd and 4th I barely did any of my homework and I wasn't trying at anything. I wasn't doing any of the sports at all.
When I was in 6th grade I started to get back on track, well sort of. I got into a fight in 6th grade. I realized that things weren't going to work out. Violence wasn't the right thing. I started doing my homework and trying.
Wrestling helped me get my grades up. In wrestling if you have bad grades or missing assignments you can't go to the meets.
