I’m in the middle of algebra class doing my work when my teacher says to the whole class that we are having a test next week worth 50% of our grades. I tell my friends about the test and how I am going to get 100% but they just laugh and giggle, I feel bad about myself but then I remember what Eminem had to go through to become famous. Eminem, born Marshal Bruce Mathers the third, was born on 17 October 1973, Kansas City Missouri. Marshal is a famous white rapper from Kansas but raised in Detroit. Life was never easy for Marshal, when he was a baby his father left him at birth, his mother Debby Marshal took care for him. Marshal was constantly bullied at school for being the only white kid that goes to his school. Marshal was physically and verbally abused at school, and he was even put in the hospital and put in a coma by being punched repeatedly in the head, the doctors said he was lucky he was only in a coma for a short period.
When Marshal was introduced to rap music he found himself practicing almost every day. When Marshal got his first job he would always be writing down notes about things that rhymed. Proof (an old friend of Marshal) thought that Marshal should start rapping at the open house he does every week because Proof saw great talent in Marshal. But the only problem was he would have to leave his comfort zone. At first he didn’t want to, but then he thought, “How will I ever get out of this slump?” So he decided to go through with it, which was a great idea because years later he would get signed with one of the most famous produces in the music industry. After Marshal first battle becoming famous didn’t seem so hard thanks to his friend that knew a guy that are looking for the next big thing which is exactly what marshal needed.
After my friends told me that I will fail I was motivated to prove them wrong the only problem was that I would have to study for hours to come also I would have to make room for my homework and my chores. Which are pretty easy due to that it is cleaning my room and the living room. The day of the test finally arrived I am a little nervous then I started to ask my self question what if I didn’t study long enough? What if my friends are right? I took a deep breath and started my test. The next day the teacher was going to show us our scores; I was so relieved to find out that I past. Lunch arrived I was telling all of my friends that I did and they were all mad because I was right and they weren’t. I have decided to add this motivation to my every day problems.
