My Revenge Is Sweet

After leading life with no encouragement from my mother and not knowing my father, the only persons was my grandma and my friends. I was bullied all the way through primary and secondary school and first year of college until I smacked someone back :|., but we won't go there...

In a way I feel my revenge is totally aimed at my mother for never giving me the hope I could achieve anything. She never helped me to learn the flute when I was in primary school, she never encouraged me to sing when I was part of a choir, she hated that I was Christian and went to church, she never took notice of my drawing, she even didn't care that I was bullied and miserable.

I remember always telling her I wanted to go to university and get a good job and a nice house, again, she never gave the hope I could do it and simply said "good luck" in a sarcastic tone quickly adding I needed to get my act together with my GCSE's despite my quickly occurring depression and self harm.

At the age of 15 I went into care and things didn't get any easier, constantly moving places and missing appointments to things. But despite all this, I completed school with 3 C's, and D's. I could of achieved more and I wanted to prove it. I continued onto college and did a BTEC First Diploma where I completed with a DDD. I still wasn't finished. I have recently completed two years of a BTEC National Diploma (equivalent to A-levels) with a DDD and I am off to university in September.

This is my success and sweet revenge that I could achieve my dreams.
