I made student of the month in November 2005. How did I find out? Actually, we were on our way to Washington in the car and one of my teachers called me on my cell phone. And, she told me I made student of the month. I was so happy! I said, "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" My parents were really proud of me. I got a certificate for that too and it is hanging in my room. To get student of the month I had to work really hard. I had to keep on doing my best. I just have to keep trying at school. The hardest part is history. I got this award not only for being a good student but also for all my work on the bake sales for raising money for Katrina.
