You Don’t Know My Story- Malik Mack

Quynh Trinh, Staff Reporter

“Behind every person lies a story”

Ritenour High School believes that for each person there is a story. That we don’t know what the other person is going through so we must not judge others. We are sharing stories of students and staff, not to be a voyeur into others pain, but to show that we all deserve some compassion.

“In sixth grade, I was a really good student. I did all my work. I had As and Bs. That went onto seventh grade, but in eighth grade, I fell off badly. I stopped applying to myself because there was a lot going on in life. My freshman year of high school was really good. I had As and Bs. Going into sophomore year, I had a goal to get all As, but then, I ran into a teacher who threw me off. I’m not blaming it on her, but I let her get me off track.

Coming into this year, I had a 2.5 GPA and I wanted to get that up. However, I couldn’t do that because I didn’t study enough. But coming into the second semester, I’m really pushing myself to fulfill my motivation for going to college and being successful in life.”
