Trying to balance working and going to school at the same time can be challenging . But some teens must step up and help their parents out .

“At first it was challenging , but I’ve gotten used to it now”, said Erika Gonzales. Throughout daily life many people have to face hard times. We face challenges but we pull through them and continue on living.

 The families that struggle tend to need the most help . In order to overcome the struggle, usually the teenagers apply for part-time or full time jobs.

“I have a job because I don’t want my mom to go through so much stress with bills”, Gonzales said . With a busy schedule teens tend to be exhausted and need more rest, homework only adds to the plate.

Some teens want to work at a certain job but they can’t. Typically jobs have age requirements for their company. The age is usually 18 or older , but at some fast food chains employees can be 16 or older.

“ I wanted to work in the fashion industry but do to my age , most companies didn’t want to hire me” , said Gonzales. I guess you can say that’s the one thing that sucks about trying to get a job. Having experience helps a lot more , than not having experience.

You might think you know someone but behind closed doors you never really know what’s going. If you know someone that is working , make sure you remind them that they’re strong. Never judge a book by its cover, because everyone has their own struggles that are going through.

About the Writer
Alarae' Malone, Writer

             Hello peps , My name is Alarae’ Malone . I am a senior , so this will be my last year in journalism. I have always  enjoyed writing . I look forward to writing stories for all of you. I promise to make my articles worth the read. If you ever see me around school , you can ask me questions I am always happy to help. I am fun and adventurous , and I hope to bring that kind of attitude to you . The reason I choose journalism is because growing up I’ve always wrote short stories. Journalism is a great class to get lost into the world of words. In journalism I can be myself, and expand my thoughts. I hope all of you enjoy this year. <3
