Why is this accomplishment important to you?

"This honor is the most important honor because it is something I have worked to achieve since junior high."

How much did you have to work to accomplish this goal or honor?

"I had to always stay on top of my work, stay competitive, self-disciplined, and maintain my focus."

What plans do you have for the future?
