“I am always looking for new challenges. I always want to discover something new and exciting in life. Even though I recognize that it is practically impossible, I strive to learn about everything there is in this world. I want to become a knowledgeable person and have information on any topic that is given to me. I want to continue studying hard. I will always keep in mind that when it comes to my studies…the sky is the limit.”
