•Counselor –good. I know her very well.
•English teacher – good. Had her for junior year and have her now too. She knows me well too, academically and personally.

•I lived in Guatemala for about 14 years. I moved to the U.S. for 10th grade. I realized that my current school’s curriculum is way harder/stronger than that of the school I attended back in Guatemala. Although not a straight A’s student, I tried my best to pull a decent GPA while adapting to my new life in the US.

Any input will be greatly appreciated.
