I plan to handle each and every classroom and academic situation, whether its stressful or not, with responsibility and maturity. School, recently, has been extremely stressful lately and I try not to let the situation get out of control before I am capable of resolving it.

I want to show people that I can deal with situations without letting my emotions get the best of me, which I have been known to let happen.

The last accomplishment I want to discuss is my 4.0 GPA. Personally, I believe this is my most significant and most optimal achievement since starting high school. I work very hard to get good grades to maintain my GPA, and I look forward to working even harder to keep my GPA and my grades at a superlative
