Hey so my name is Jeanpierre Montano, it is a french name even tho I’m hispanic so it might be a little weird even tho I got used to it after a while. Whenever someone would here my name they would usually assume that I’m from somewhere in Europe or even french, But once they see me its different because I look way more hispanic so for me it was a bit weird saying my name to others I wasn’t comfortable really saying it because it was kinda hard for people to pronounce it. So thats where I got the nickname “Jp” from. it was more easier to say and I like it better, not saying that I don’t like my name I grew loving it after a certain while just because its kinda unique. School for me Wasn’t always all that easy, but it took my mind off of things at times especially when I’m writing about personal things in my life. It allowed me to open up as a person and express my feelings more and I learn so many things that taught me to be the person I am today. My parents are also another reason I would say I’m striving to be the best I possibly can be, they both came from a different country and they fought so hard to give me and my brothers a better opportunity at life and i am so thankful and want to be the best that I can. I have so many goals for this year and one of the main ones would be Getting good grades in this semester because I know I have potential. I would have loved for school to have been in person this year but I wouldn’t mind online because I feel like I can manage my time better and overall I enjoy it. Many other goals I have this year is my health and be a better person overall, one of the things that I would do is go to the gym and that just helps my mental health, it helped me be more determined and hardworking. Thats a few things I would say that make me who i am and last thing is I would say is I’m sarcastic so that gets to the better of me. this is something overall about me
It’s been a difficult year for us, for the groups we belong to, so let’s write about it!
