“There are things in life that are out of our control. Circumstances and other phenomenon can determine our path, a fact which I resent. I can control only so many things in my life; my success in school is one such thing. I don’t like having a path chosen for me, and so I am constantly motivated to excel in order to succeed on my own terms. Forging my own path by taking control of my schooling has inspired me.”
