My family and I have been hit with floods ever since I can remember. We were stuck in a small neighborhood with rivers surrounding my house. We tried to sell and get out, but who wants to buy a house that all of your belongings get destroyed in? When I was in fourth grade, my house lost 3 walls of foundation, and I also lost my college funds. I am a junior in high school now, and I have high aspirations to go pre-med and become a psychiatrist. Without money, I can't do this. I will not let the flooding control my future and my past anymore.
