Before I act, I take a step back and think about the goals and purposes of what I stand behind. Then, I research the cause of what I believe in and make sure I agree to a certain extent the overall message that it is trying to portray. Every decision I make reflects who I am as a person and also can impact the generations after me.
As far as the picture, this is me and my little sister, Amanda. Amanda has been a major influence in my life. She saw me go through a rebellious phase during my high school yearz, and she was my main reason for why I stopped what I was doing and transformed into the big sister she expected me to be. In this picture, she was officially initiated into the Junior Beta Club, and received the position of officer. When she was delivering her speech, I realized that she has so much drive at such a young age and I couldn’t wait to see her grow up. By being a role model to her, she is excelling in academics and extracurricular activities as well as having a positive influence in her community. I couldn’t be more proud of Amanda.
