This year I made an earnest effort to improve my work ethic. My grade point average is rising and my study habits are improving. Dedicated to making something of myself, I finally matured and I am no trying to lessen the consequences of my past actions. Armed with a new attitude and my understanding of the extreme importance of earning good grades to signal my capacity to work responsibly, I assure you that I will never revert to the student I once was. I am proud of myself because I realized that it wasn’t too late to turn my academic life around.
“David has met the challenges of this course through hard work and diligence. He is one of the few students who is willing to try each day with renewed enthusiasm, despite difficulties he had the previous day. This desire to succeed and drive to overcome his own inhibitions makes him stand out from his peers in the class.”
