I believe I am a great candidate because of my ambitious drive. I am unlike those in my family and school. I am driven by competition and seeing myself succeed. Growing up, I saw my parents struggle financially, from eating ramen noodles every night to having one drawer full of my belongings. My mom told me to go to school, get a degree, and live the life I was always meant to live. I give my all in every club, class and job I have. I work days out of the week to ensure that I can pay for my bills and support myself. I have started my own businesses. I am setting myself up for success. I feel I am passionate about not giving up. When times become tough, I always feel that happiness is temporary. And then I realize that if one is temporary, then so is pain. One cannot exist without the other. Such as the Yin and Yang symbol. One cannot be without the other, and small hints of bad are in good. And vice versa. I know that I can never give up on the things I want and care about. There will never be a giving up point for me.
