I don't know exactly how I'm going to reach my goals or where I will end up in the future, but I know college will guide me to a brighter future; a future where I can have a career and be successful. Seeing the negative path that others have followed has convinced me not to follow in their steps. I want to make something of myself, on the path of academic achievement and success. I look forward to achieving all my goals and dreams one day. My family, peers and community have all shaped the person I am today; a motivated, determined, bright teenager. They have all taught me a valuable lesson; knowledge and education is truly the key to success. They have showed me that I can become someone great if I pursue a higher education. That's the person I want to be.
