Personal Info/Bio

Updated thoughts -2023
Why I left ECHS after 10th grade - I wanted to share with my classmates why I decided to leave ECHS for Kennedy after the 10th grade as many people don't know the story. I wanted to take auto shop at ECHS but the caoch at EC wouldn't allow it! So I transfered to Kennedy and was the first girl in auto shop and I got an A+!
