Introduce Yourself: My name is Clara. I guess you can say I’m hispanic. I come from a really small town in South Texas and I go to school about 2 miles from the border of Mexico. I’m not that great with the whole speaking Spanish thing although I wish I was. I’m 15 years old and I’m about 5’6”. I enjoy playing basketball and spending time with my family.

Thoughts On People In The World?: I think certain people take things for granted. I’m not saying I don’t do that either, I’m just speaking in general. There’s so much in this world to appreciate than thinking of all the negative there is and that’s what most people don’t understand. There isn’t any time to be moping around or being sad. I’d like to see more optimists than pessimists nowadays.

What are your inspirations & goals?: My inspiration would have to be my older brother. I have looked up to him for as long as I can remember and now that he is leaving away for college I can see how hard he has worked to obtain valedictorianship. He is very athletic and smart and to me, that’s eberything I’ve wanted to be. For so long he has been the one to help me do better without him even realizing so. I hope one day I will make him proud and do the same he did.

How would you impact the world?: If I could impact the world I would use for positive ways to do things. I hate to see so many people taking to saddest way out, suicide. It happens so often now people get used to it and I just don’t feel like that’s the only way. I would like for people to be better and lend out a helping hand for those in need and not just look the other way.

Struggles In Life? : A struggle in life would be me not ever being able to meet some of my grandparents. I feel like they could have helped with things my parents couldn’t have. I miss many of my family members that have passed away and at certain times it gets to me.

How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : Some days I feel great and others I feel ehh. I wouldn’t make any changes to my body or anything physical. I’d make changes in my personality. I feel like if I were better at understanding I would still have certain people in my life. I feel like I push the one who love me away.

What does love mean to you?: To me, Love means you’ll always be there no matter what. There should be trust that he/she is doing you right and never wrong. There should be no account of wrongdoings. Love is taking care of you when you’re sick knowing you’ll do the same in return. Love is praying for eachother in secret. Love is patient. Love is kind.
