I lived a hard life, grew up in a sexually and physically abusive household. my father died freshman year and my mother went crazy on drugs. (thats why my grades were bad freshman and sophomore year) I went through a phase of no hope and did not care about life. I'm now a foster child and changed myself and have better grades (see junior year).

I know my grades aren't good and I'm trying to get mySAT scores up, but I'm hoping my many EC's and personal statement will help. What do you guys think?
Please! Chance me for Berkeley!
