Who I am in life
My name Leslie Halsell. I went to Washington Elementary and was very athletic and a honor roll student. After graduating from there I went to Proviso East High School, did very well academically and played varsity volleyball and softball. Growing up with my generation was kind of rough. Our parents did not know how to educate us on violence, sex, and drugs. There were a lot of gang-banging going, teen age sex, and lots of drug use. Unfortunately I fell victim to all 3. I end up getting kick out of school, I got pregnant and after my pregnancy I started using drugs. After leading such a rough life, I found my way and got myself together. I have a beautiful son his name is Levi and he is 25 years old. I started attended college at Ivy Tech Community College, and just transferred to Phoenix Online to finish my degree in Human Services.

I just want to be a better person and I know as long as continue to do the right things and trust in the Lord I can’t go wrong.
