I would like to thank Mr. Parker, Mrs. McKinney, and Mrs. Gorton for showing me that there could be more for me than just having my high school diploma. They gave me harder classes that challenged me and pushed me forward. This fall I can proudly say that I will be attending UNCG and not flipping burgers or making fries for the rest of my life. My American dream would be to make it out there in the world and help out my family; because of them I’m living an incredible life and would like to thank them for all the sacrifices they made for me.
My friends also had a great impact in my life; because of them I have had many happy moments in my life and will cherish them forever. I know that life is hard and carries many tests that will truly challenge you, but I am one of those people that can step up and come through -- it’s how I was raised. I am headstrong and if you ask anyone I am very determined when I set my goals, plus a tad bit bossy.
