Veleda’s Hopes and Dreams (Part I)
October 16, 2007
I did not learn how to read in school, but am learning how now. Sometimes I feel like I won’t make it but I keep going. I look for ways to make things better for myself but when a person comes along it seems like they look at me like I don’t know anything, but I do.
I have learned a lot in the past year and am learning how to ask for help when needed. I am looking to help someone like me make it in life. School doesn’t help people like me make it in life. They just pass you by like you are a dog. When I was growing up, my house was not easy to live in. But I learned life is not easy and you make the best out of what you are in. I love myself and keep myself first in life and thank God for every thing in life. I hope people can look for ways to read and keep reading so people can take us for what we are and not take advantage of us.
I am a woman with hope and dreams of becoming better in life. Look at me and know that I am more then what you see. Look past the skin and look at me. I am someone with a lot of things to say to you.
I love to tell people about the DLC. It is teaching me to read better and I am not sad about what I am. I am loving and caring and very funny if you get to know me. Some people will never know me because they think they already do. I am someone with big dreams. I am someone who loves life for what it is and not for what I can get out of it.
People who can’t read are looking for people to take the time to help them. I have a way for that: the DLC!
