My Legacy Throughout our lives, we make choices and decisions that change our lives and others in positive and/or negative ways. It is these decisions that determine how we will be remembered, our legacy. When I graduate high school, I want to be remembered by the qualities that define me as a person and the good I’ve done for others. Throughout the years, I’ve been often been described by my family and friends as bold, confident, outgoing, and hardworking. Not only are these characteristics important to me, but they are important to my family, as they want to leave a legacy in the name of our family. The qualities I have exhibited are the same qualities past family members have shown and are remembered for. Through always putting out my best effort when it comes to work and school, I have shown my dedication and discipline. Through doing what I can to help others, I have displayed my commitment to world peace, the betterment of the world as a whole, and the yearning to make a difference in someone’s life other than my
I believe in searching for new perspectives. Time is incessant, and each day provides the opportunity for a fresh experience. I fear an unstoppable routine, knowing the world could offer me more than what is in my vicinity. With a constant restraint for viewing only what is in my reach, it is impossible to become the person I am destined to be.

From a young age, I have never particularly excelled in any field. I was an average student and average at all of my so-called talents. However, my perception of myself changed in 7th grade when I joined the Debate club at my school. That one club helped me realize my potential and taught me not to underestimate myself. During my journey in that club, I learned a lot of things. Having needed to debate on various issues around the world, this club was an eyeopener to the privileged life I lived. It was that year I made a decision to make this passion of mine into a career- a human rights lawyer.It is has been 3 years since I took that decision and my passion hasn't diminished. Ever since that year, I have strived to be the best version of myself
I hated my body growing up. My nearly 6-foot frame made it awkward to fit in with my classmates, as I towered over a majority of my peers and teachers at the tender age of twelve. If my height did not distract them, my massive build did, as the chorus
Reflecting on my childhood, I always had a vivid imagination. I loved telling stories to anyone who would listen. As I grew older, I began writing poetry and I became obsessed with movies. Over the years, I realized that I wanted to travel to some of the places I had
In the modern world, a majority of high school graduates have opted to skip college and go straight into the workforce. These students believe that college is not worth the cost and will be able to earn more money by starting to work as soon as they graduate high school. Recent studies show that this may not be the best plan. Studies have proven that “Adults who graduated from a four-year college believe that, on average, they are earning $20,000 more a year as a result of having gotten that degree.” (Pew). College is worth the financial investment because college graduates earn substantially more and have a wider variety of job opportunities.
Overview of My Life If there is anything I have learned from my personal experiences, that is that anyone can plant a seed, but not many take the initiative to water the plant for it to grow strong and tall. I am the product of divorced parents, both whom are Hispanic, have Mexican roots, and were brought at an early age to America to claim citizenship. Because of their divorce, I had to grow up faster than what I would have liked. I never once did receive child support from my biological father. In fact, it was my mother who worked to provide for all my needs. I was often left behind, not by choice but rather necessity. I went from babysitter to babysitter and some of them did not treat me well. In addition, they could not provide me with the motherly love that I so dearly wanted and sought. I did not comprehend the sacrifices that my mother was doing for me until I was about five years old.

The obstacles we face in life have ways of shaping and molding us into the people we become in the future. Depression and anxiety are issues that I still continue to deal with to this day. Yet, through years of self healing, I have been able to reveal a tenacious side of myself that I had no idea even existed. These issues stem from relentless bullying I experienced throughout middle school. I felt as if I was not worthy of respect like everyone else around me. Going to school day after day with people who detested my existence was unbearable. It was like walking into a lion's den wearing a necklace constructed of nothing more than meat. On many occasions walked in on conversations that I was the topic of. Eighth grade brought me the most turmoil.

College is a great opportunity that I am blessed to be going through today. I see it as an opportunity to grow as a person and set myself up for the future I want. The success I have in the future will be greatly affected by how I do in college.
