Prologue In my autobiography i am going to talk about my experiences,struggles,achievements, and basically my life. It’ll start off short, from introducing who i am to further information you’ll get to know about me, myself, and i. Here’s to my likes and dislikes. My personal and nonpersonal stories and what colors my world inside and out. To start it off i’ll bring you into what it was like growing up. As a kid i was always eager to find out how to do things on my own. Growing up life was easy, i had both my parents by my side and my 4 siblings to guide me into the direction it now leads me. My family was all i had as a kid. I didn’t mind arguing with my siblings because we always had a laugh at the end of the day. I chose coloring books over electronics and playing outside my house over going a play port. Actually, we never really had those experiences to do all those sorts of things as a kid. But i really wouldn’t have it any other way. My childhood was fun and if i could go back to being a kid i’d go back anyday. Growing up to be the young adult i am today, i learned many things in life. I did and experienced things i never knew existed and i also learned from the mistakes i made and it shapes me to become a better person than i was yesterday. My interests changes over the years that i get older but it doesn’t stop me to achieve my goals. I strive to become someone so successful and i plan to be the best i can be. I have so many good thoughts about life and i try to be someone so positive on the daily. Everything negative doesn’t get a hold of things i can do or be and that what molds me to be someone so strong. In the future i plan to be someone with a successful career with someone who supports me with everything that goes on in my life. I want to be someone my younger brother and little nieces and nephews look up to. In the future i aspire to be the best version of my past self. I wanna make my parents proud of the child they made. In the future i want a mindset that never gives up. I wanna live my life to the fullest with a great support system and i wanna achieve my goals with the people that i hold close to my heart and who i love the most!

Sensory Experiences School Pep Rally LOUD and EXCITED voices all over the gym as we walked in. COOL COLD water going down our throat as we drank after yelling several school cheers. With a mixture of everyone’s sweat soaked on us with a mix of the smell of the our school gym. Beautiful and melodic tunes played by our chamorro classes and sba peers. The music and dance added to while each class battled to for our class lip syncs. Ending the pep rally with GLOWING lights of everyone’s phone as we sang a goodbye song with everyone in the gym.


Metaphorical Definitions Pain is weakness leaving the body Happiness is getting a passing grade Sadness is a dark room Excitement is counting down the day to graduation Love is a box full of chocolate Peace is being in a room full of a happy family Fear is failing a test Strength is facing your fears Confused is a maze Disappointment is a jail cell


A Quality Personality Hurt. Hurt is a sad person. She is full of sorrow and lessons learned. She will be confused most of the time and unstable, so she will do whatever it takes to get out of a dark tunnel. To everyone she meets it helps her grow from the dirt she was left in. She can be sensitive, observant, quiet, and smart.


Color Your World I associate with the color Yellow because of how i am as a person. Yellow is very bright, fun, and outgoing. I feel that color suits me best because it matches my moods on all sorts of days. Yellow stands out in all the other colors and that’s how i feel with most people. Yellow is the color meant to be happy. I am the type of person to be happy no matter the outcome. Yellow means joy.


Room Sweet Room My room is not just my room. It is my comfort zone. I know some of you guys use your room as a place to get your clothes, change, or even sleep in. Mine, i use mine as it is a fashion show or even a confession box. I spend most of my time dressing up, to even dancing and singing my lungs out in my room. I spill my darkest secrets in my room and i also cry my heart out on my bed. I spend most of my days laying down or even rearranging my room. My room is my comfort zone. Besides my mirror,walls, and every other furniture in there no one has ever seen me act the way i do. It’s like i could be myself on most days i feel i can’t out in public. My bed is my escape. Although my room may not have everything in it or be as big as a master bedroom, it a place i find very comforting.

Telling Tales When i was younger i had a couple of friends, ancestor friends. Before elementary i always went with my sisters and their boyfriends to the beaches and hiking. One day on our normal routine we went to marble cave. As a kid i always pretended to sleep so that someone older would carry me into my house or in the car. But this time i wasn’t kidding.

As a little girl i had super long thick hair and that’s what they loved. I would always sleep walk around my house talking to other people i saw that no one else didn’t. It was such a crazy but cool experience having a third eye. As i got older they don’t bother me no more but i still highly respect them. I still get the chills whenever i share my story with friends or family but it’s always something to tell when talking about different past experiences.

Personal Symbol Last christmas i got a pandora ring from my bestfriend. This ring means a lot to me because it’s basically a promise ring that no matter where life takes us or the odds that may come in between we will forever remain best friends. I wear this ring every day since i got it and i haven’t took it off. It means so much to me because i’ve never received a ring like this from anyone and i never wear rings so it really does say and mean something.

Mysterious Place As a kid my parents would always bring my siblings and i to my grandma and grandpa’s house in yigo. Where my grandparents stayed, my grandma’s siblings stayed also. Down the street there was a house my nana and the rest of my grandma’s siblings and grandma stayed that was abandoned since my nana passed away. Not really abandoned but a house no one stays in but a house full of furniture and old things my grandma and her family owned. It’s a place no one goes to but a place my cousins go to to check because we’re always curious on what’s in there. So one day we finally had the guts to go inside and check. In the house remained everything my tata and nana owned with a side of my grandma and her siblings belongings. We freaked out once we saw old dusty pictures with how they look with furniture and a old radio from way back that still remains to play. It was crazy but cool, we even saw clothing that they owned and more things. What was super cool was that there was a river in the back of the house that my uncle showed us. It was a river my nana would use to get water from everytime they didn’t to use for cooking and washing clothes. My nana and tata’s house is a mysterious place and it’s something to cherish looking at.

A Day in the Life One summer evening my parents discussed how they wanted to off island in August. My siblings and i didn’t think they were gonna pull through with their word until one day my mom took all of us to rev and tax to get all of our passports. I thought to myself “this is real.” My parents talked more into it and told my siblings and i we were gonna moved to california for good. My eyes got bigger and shouted out loud “FOR GOOD?” my mom looked at me nodded her head yes for good! I was super excited. As the days got closer my mom withdrew us from our schools and got all the papers ready. Days flew by super fast so we started counting the days and got rid of a lot of things and started to pack. I didn’t wanna leave the second we got to the airport because i knew it was happening. I cried the hardest out of everyone because i didn’t wanna leave my bestfriend, my cousin. We both cried the hardest once it was time to go and looking back at it i laugh. The mainland is always a good place to go to for vacation but it isn’t for me. I got home sick super quick but talking to my family in guam everyday always helped.The state i lived in for 9 months was California. It’s a beautiful state and has many sites and places


to visit but super long road trips. I enjoyed many of them, to me personally i rather go to the states for vacation and have no destination for road trips with my family and a bunch of friends.The schools are way different from the ones here and the people too. It has many opportunities but i wouldn’t wanna stay in the states.
