I realize that in life, my main goal is to be a person who I will be proud of. My continued perseverance and hard work shows that achieving my goals are much harder than it looks. At the beginning of high school, my main goal was to survive the ordeal and hardships and get into my dream college. As high school nears its end, my priorities have dramatically changed and so have my goals. As a long term goal I want to create a nonprofit organization for children in India, but in order to do that I first have to achieve my short term goal of getting into my desired major and job. As I fearfully write my college applications, my short-term goal is to receive admission into my desired major: Biomedical Engineering.

While my goals short and long-term are very ambitious, I believe that if I work hard and persevere, I can achieve them. All of the goals I make, have a great amount of significance and personal meaning behind them. The current short term goals paves the path for my future ones. The goals that I place for myself serve as a reminder that I have to work hard day and night in order to make them a reality and give my life a purpose.
