Hi, my name is Justin Chao and I am the newest member of the Sac BHC Youth Media team; I am a 15 year old Mien male whose only place in life is beside my friends and family right now and in the future. I was born and raised in Sacramento for most of my life. As a child I grew up being picked on by the kids from around the block and from school. As I grew older it seemed to me that I was going to end up in jail or worse dead at the rate of trouble I was making.
Then my whole life changed when I met some people who gave me advice about life based on what they have experienced. In my free time nowadays I like to play sports with friends at the park and help others who are in need of help and maybe on the side make a little bit of money. I’m not much of a reader but, I am very understanding of what people have to say about a certain subject or topic. I am not the type of person to judge you based on your appearance; I base my opinion on others after getting to know the person emotionally.
What sets me apart from most teenagers my age is my goal for my future. My goal is to be able to go to college and earn a double major in business finance and electrical engineering, so that one day I could open up an electrical company that does not steal from the everyday man or woman that does their taxes. With this goal in mind I have sown my own future for myself and my family. A wise man once told me, “If you sow a thought, you will reap an action, and if you reap an action, you will sow your fate.” Now the only question is will you sow your own fate?
