"I do not want to be the type of person that works everyday just for money because they did not take the chance to chase their dreams."

Currently, I am pursuing my dream of being a writer. I’m interested in learning to craft well-developed stories that I can share with people around the world. I also hope to inspire the young generation to turn to books and writing as a source of comfort and expression.

I have loved reading books since I was in first grade. To me, books are like opening a door to another world. Reading books has helped me know more about life and has helped me cope with problems in my everyday life.

Education has always been a struggle for me, especially when it came to math. Every struggle in my education has made me more determined never to give up. Now that I am in college, I want to achieve my dream of graduating and having a career that I really enjoy.

I do not want to be the type of person that works everyday just for money because they did not take the chance to chase their dreams. I want to be that person that says, "I'm so proud of myself because I did it!"

My mom has always been my cheerleader. She wants me to finish my education and to live a life she never had the opportunity to. She gave up her own dreams to raise me in the best way possible. She is definitely my inspiration.
