The professors were incredible about helping me with my learning disability because occupational therapists are all about helping people with disabilities! For example, instead of making me take multiple-choice tests that are so hard for me, my anatomy professor let me draw the nerves and muscles and bones on a picture of the human body.

I started dozing off in class because I couldn’t understand the teacher. They kicked me out, and I went to another special school in eighth grade. My schoolwork improved because of all the support I got at my new school, and I was back in a regular school for ninth and tenth grade. At this school, I began to respect the importance of doing homework. I didn’t want to arrive in class without my work and give the teacher any reason to think I was a bad student. Though I started working harder, switching schools so much was shameful for me.

Though I struggled through St. John’s, I really loved it. For the first time, I felt good about myself academically. I was really trying, and I was doing all the homework. Sometimes I did my homework at my father’s office, which I loved because I started learning more about the business world. During senior year, my grades began to improve, I worked even harder, and I was involved in school activities. Jorge was still tutoring me, and I got help from other tutors, too. I became more responsible about school, and those two years changed my life completely.
