I’m motivated by the people around me. Each day I can’t wait for an opportunity to see my friends and connect with other people.

I am committed to sports and my education. I commit myself to sports because I love playing them and they help me create goals for myself to reach. The same thing goes for education, as succeeding in class will aid me in the future.

Thinking about my future motivates me a lot. When I don’t feel like going to school or just waking up so early in the morning, I think about how important it is.

I want to be a pediatric oncologist when I grow up. Though school is difficult, fulfilling this goal is my motivation.

I am committed to doing well in school because I can see how much my parents sacrifice to help me with my education.
