Graduration and my 19th Birthday

Image
I can't believe that on June 22, 2007 was my graduation and my 19Th birthday. I can remember sitting at graduation thinking "wow I can't believe I am here". It was an amazing feeling that I can't explain. My family and friends came to celebrate with me and I was so happy. My family and friends and I went out to eat and later that night I got presents that I needed for college. On June 23, 2007 we celebrated on a boat and everything was great. The weather was real nice and we had a lot of fun.



Father's Day

Today is Father's Day and I want to say Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there. I can't say that to my dad (well at least not face to face), my dad died when I was eight years old of prostate cancer. I remember that day and I don't think I will ever forget it no matter how hard I try to erase the memory of losing my dad. One thing I don't understand is "why did my dad died so young"? I wish I knew the answer. There is one thought that came to mind and that is if my dad would not have died would I have prayed to God almost every night? I really do miss my dad and I wish I could tell him I love him but I can't.

Now that I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in my life, I want to have God as my Father. I pray to him and ask can we have a father and daughter relationship? I pray that we can. I really want to walk with God to places, like I see other girls with their dads at stores. It might seem weird but I want to have a father I can talk to about l…

My last year of high school

I can't believe school is over, I will miss school and all the people I have meet throughout my school year. I have gone through a lot in school from having low grades to people in school putting me down. I never thought I would make it this far in life especially the way I was before high school. I use to be a very shy and quiet girl but now I have gotten out of my shell. I use to be depressed but now I know who I am in God's eyes and I have confidence. I really have to thank Jesus because I know making the honor roll, passing all my exams, protecting me in school, making friends and getting into college was with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ help. I could not have made it this far without him.

Now I am looking forward to going to college, making new friends, joining clubs, and becoming a social worker. I pray to God that when I do go off to college HE will be by my side. I am a little scared because I don't know what's ahead. But I know as long as I got Jesus everyt…

Senior Award Night (June 7, 2007)

I remember getting a letter from my school saying I was invited to a senior award ceremony on June 7, 2007. I thought that I was getting award because I made the honor roll but something surprising happen. I can remember my guidance counselor saying these words:

The AAUW-Westchester Branch Outstanding Student Award, The Cooperative Scholarship Fund Award, The Ossining Golden Age Club #1 Award, and the Ossining Support Staff-Joyce Velardo Scholarship is awarded to ASIA BRAGGS.

I was shock, I didn't know I was getting four awards and 19 hundred in scholarships. I thank my Lord and Savior for that.
