I am a 9th grader at Commack High School. There is nothing more imortant to my parents then me going to college and my grades. I'm the youngest of 3 and my parents are currently struggling with morgage and other economy things. They have to pay for my sisters college and y other sisters soccer. They tell me i have to at least get a partial scholarship because they won't have enough money. They are always puttig stress on me to do good on my tests and just in genreal. I'm constantly thinking about me not getting a partial scholarship and me not being able to go to college. It scares me and puts even more stress on me. I overcame that this year by balancing school work and social activities. I did very good during the year and was still able to hang with frieds and do all the things i wanted to. I overcame stress in my freshman year.
