Against All Odds

This story is dedicated to youth and young love. It represents the feel of love, disappointment, lust, responsibility, and forgiveness. I will admit that a lot of this story has some truth to it but I will keep it fresh. Please Enjoy.


I'd graduated high school finally and I was ready for college. I didn't really know what to expect because I didn't know the first thing about being out of Chicago. I was eighteen and very well educated to have come up in Chicago public schools. I'd only been outside of Illinois once and my first time was for a summer in Dc to spend with my cousins. Now Im leaving to attend college and I didn't know how to feel. My story is pretty simple. My name is Iyana Shyann Terry. I grew up on the south side of Chicago and i'm proud of it. I aint never really liked school but I went and did my best because I refused to be like my mother. Who had dropped out of high school and struggled to raise me and my little sister as a single parent....
