One life goal I am determined to accomplish is to go to college. I would be one of the first in my family to go to college and earn my degree. I am very passionate about my education as a result. I strive to make good grades in my challenging classes because it brings me joy to make my mama proud. I also love to work on my car with my dad. I have wanted the same car since I was seven, so it is surreal that I got it when I was 16. I got to build my car almost from the ground up with my dad. Through that experience our connection grew. We used the car as a tool to bond. I also have two sisters and a brother that make me super happy. One of my sisters is my twin. She is my best friend, teammate (team twin), and biggest supporter. We do everything together, so it is hard realizing that soon we won't be together due to differing interest in colleges. My baby sister keeps me entertained. Seeing her toothless smile makes the whole world better. My little brother loves to wrestle and play games, so he keeps me on my feet.
