    Won't Back Down is like living my life prior to high school. I grew up semi-poor, seeing as how I was raised by a single mother, so we moved around a lot. I went to an elementary and middle school that didn't have the money or materials to help the kids there. So my mother took me out of the school system before I started high school and we moved so I can attend a better high school, even if it meant penny-pitching everything, so I could graduate from that high school. And I did, though I did it in 5 years because it was a true shock going from one school to a better school. So that's why I would love to win this very inspirational blu-ray.
