"1 Flag: Theresa Gutierrez"
Good Afternoon everyone, I would like to fairly introduce myself. I was given the name by a Saint, also known as my mother; the name my family chose for me is Theresa Gutierrez. Though my parents and my sisters were born in Honduras, I, on the other hand was born in the sandy beaches of Miami Beach, Florida, on October 2nd,1991, the last of five sisters’ in the Gutierrez family. After my parents got divorced, the ones who raised me have been my sisters. Though I grew up without my parents and dealt with difficult times, my sisters have become more than just sisters, more than just role models, more than just friends, but more like mothers and guardian angels.
Others that have brought much joy to my life are my 4 nephews and 2 nieces. They are the ones that always bring a big smile into my face. I am very family oriented; I love my family despite all the obstacles that might interfere in our lives. Many people consider me to be one of the friendliest persons they have met before. It’s true. I do care about others very much, I love listening to others and helping them when they are in need. One of my worst qualities is that I care too much about others and not much about myself.
I spend most of my time in school and have fully enjoyed every bit of it. Ever since middle school, I have occupied myself in joining FCCLA, the Treasurer of CIA (Chiefs in Action) and the Treasurer of Shenandoah Middle School. Now that I am in my last year in Miami Senior High, I have become even more involved in school. For instance, I am the Vice President of Historical Honor Society, I participate actively in AWARE, I am the Corresponding Secretary of BETA, and the most fulfilling achievement I have gained this year is that I am the SGA President of my beloved Miami Senior High.
Later in life I wish to become a successful writer, with my Ph D and plan to travel the world and learn about each country and its culture. One day I plan to write my own book and even one day write an article for the National Geographic magazine. I know that I will strive my best to reach my goal in life, I am an overachiever, making my dreams come true.
