“Growing up, my motivation to do well in school was my family. Through their support, I was able to improve my academic performance. However, as I grew older, I found that I strictly learned for the praise of my family and the people around me, which bothered me tremendously. I struggled to reach where I am now, but through my troubles and growth, I can confidently say that I learn for myself; I challenge and make myself proud.”
