Become a doctor and start a foundation for charity.
Working and attending school full time has taught me how to maintain a balanced lifestyle. I sort my priorities and keep a to-do list of reminders and deadlines with me at all times.
I'm obsessed with monkeys and turtles. I have a pet turtle and would have a pet monkey, if it was allowed.
My parents, those who doubt me, and the confidence I have in myself. Have you ever had someone tell you that you won't be able to accomplish your goals or dreams? Well, I've heard it numerous times and many have told me to quit while I'm ahead. Some might take these comments as words of discouragement and use them as a reason to give up on their dreams, but they motivate me to push toward what I want in life.
