When the teachers asked me why I was late, I told them that I was in the bathroom or that I was talking to another teacher about something. They wouldnt bother me after that. I did just enough work to pass, but I made it a point to never let my friends find that out. On the days when I did my homework, I used to give it to the teacher after class so my friends wouldnt see. If they knew, I was sure they would give me a hard time. They would be like, What are you doing the work for?

You think youre better than us? Then my class was divided up. The kids with the worst behavior and grades, including most of my friends, were sent to a different class. Since I didnt have my crew to do things with anymore, I had two choicesI could either not go to school at all, or I could start doing my work. I knew my mother would kill me if I didnt go to school, so I started to go to class every day and began to do my homework on a more regular basis.

My teachers were happy, and so was I. By the time I was in eighth grade, I had worked my way up to a B average. I still felt that I could do better, but I didnt want to get higher grades than most of the people in my class.

I thought they would get mad at me and be like, Oh, now she thinks that shes smarter than me. Soon Jesselin started high school.

Then came ninth grade and a big reality check. I thought that high school was going be a bigger playground than junior high. I was wrong. Even though most of the kids were the same, the atmosphere was very different. It was a brand-new alternative school and there were only about 50 stu- dents in the whole place. Every teacher knew who you were and where you were supposed to be every minute of the day.

I had to do my work because there was no place to hide. My teachers knew that I was smart and saw right through my front of acting like I didnt care. Still, I thought that as long as I handed in a couple 8 Success for Teens of pieces of work they would be satisfied and not bother me. For my whole freshman year, I was constantly told that I could do better. But it just went in one ear and came out the other.

Over the summer after ninth grade, I was talking to a friend who was in college.

He asked me how I was doing in school. I told him that I was doing OK. How OK? I told him I was doing just enough to pass. He asked me why, because he knew I could be at the top of my class if I wanted to be. I told him that I had gotten very lazy.

Then he asked me if I wanted to go to college. I told him that what I really wanted was to get a scholarship so I could go to a college out of state. My friend told me there was no way I was going to get a scholarship. He even told me to forget about college at all, because I probably wouldnt finish high school the way I was going.

He put so much fear in me that I spent the rest of that summer thinking about what he said. It was the same thing my teachers had been telling me for years. It finally started to sink in. For a long time, it had been my dream to be the first one in my family to graduate from high school and go to college. Now I realized that I was going to have to work to make that dream come true.

The Slight Edge

Jesselin began to change. For all of 10th grade, I did nothing but work. Breaking my lazy habits was the hardest thing I have ever done. I had to get used to doing my homework every night, not just when I felt like it. And I had to make a lot of sacrifices. I couldnt sit home and watch TV all day. I hardly listened to music. And I didnt see a lot of my friends outside of school. They would say, Jesse, lets go down- town so I can go download this shirt or, Lets go downtown and just chill.

And I was always saying, No, I cant, I have to stay after school and finish my work. So, here I am, a junior almost ready for collegenot at all ashamed of how bright I am, and not caring who knows it. It feels like the good girl I once had inside me has come back. Jesselin learned that success can mean going against whats popular and sacrificing for what you really want.

She started doing the little, positive Little Things Matter 9 things even when she didnt feel like it. She started to believe in herself and in what she knew was most important. And she started using that knowl- edge, even if other people were telling her something different. Instead of just knowing the right things to do, Jesselin actually did them. And she grew as a person and made herself a better life.

A few years ago she was traveling with her family and passing through an airport. There was a woman there who had lost all her travel papers and she didnt speak one word of English. She was Spanish-speaking. My mother, who speaks Spanish, noticed something was going on and went over and offered her services. And she helped the woman get her forms filled out 10 Success for Teens Chapter 1 and on her way. It was all done in about a half-hour, with my mom step- ping up to the plate, when it would have taken an hour with a translator.
