David Jason MunozCEPD 8102Timeline 1974- Present Past, Present, and Future
1978 - Child Memories My most vivid memories have to do with family love I shared through my parents. As a child, I remember growing up with a mom, that loved like no other. My dad, was the hardest working man I ever new. Dad also taught me how to treat a female by the way he treated my mother. Dad is still a loving man! My 5th birthday was the day I remember feeling loved by my parents.
1980 - Childhood Memories - Continued • I started playing baseball at the age of six, which allowed me to learn about success and failure. Sports were very instrumental in my life, as I played college baseball, leading to a degree.
1987 - Childhood Memories - Continued • At the age of 13, I played football and ran track for J.C. Booth middle school. I set records in football and track. My track record in the hurdles has yet to be broken. I remember middle school being significant in the areas of self image and self-esteem. Growing up with low economic status in a very high economic community caused early self doubt for me. Success in sports caused me to develop a positive self image and develop confidence to socially interact and overcome my fears.
1993 - High School Challenges At the age of 17, I had to deal with depression as I had to deal with an injury in baseball. I was going to be drafting in June, 1993, but hurt my arm in winter baseball practice. I did not get drafted and started to lose control of my self image. I started to drink and not care about life choices. I was headed down the wrong path.
