Let me start out with the story quick story in high school. I grew up in Sandy Utah. I went to Alta High School and I was an athlete and I loved humor. I don't know if I would go as far Thursday. I tried to be a Class Clown but I definitely loved to have fun in school and I loved Sports and I did my best at school. I had no idea. What effect my ADD was playing on my Dodge Journey at that time, but I was a generally happy person but I truly had no idea what I wanted to do or who I wanted to be when I grew up and I also saw attention. I now know I wanted people to like me. I still want people to like me and that led me to running for class office I ran for and won and this is so funny now to go back and think I'm not 100% sure what I want and what am, I believe I was my eighth grade class president and then I moved up to high school. I think I won ninth grade class president. I might have lost eighth grade and one ninth grade and thinking I had things figured out at that point. I believe Iran for 10th grade class president. I got greedy and I lost that one and I remember being truly devastated though whenever I did lose and again, maybe I want eighth grade last night. It's funny to think I can log. Remember that but I do remember that I one student body class secretary my senior year and several of my friends one student body office positions and we had an amazing time, but I digress one of the duties.
