My life will be the challenge of attaining three goals to their fullest degree: to learn, to love and to live. Oh! To learn- I will make my mind a sponge, soaking up every fact it encounters. In school and out of school, my ears, eyes and heart will be open to learn new things, and gather new facts. I will knit these facts and experiences into a final product: a tapestry of education. I will earn my Bachelor's degree in Pre-Med. at New College of USF, and go to Columbia to earn my Ph.

D. in medicine. Each degree I earn will not only make me eligible for colleges or jobs, but will declare a set of knowledge gained. In the end, I will not only be taught math, English, and science, but how the scholars of history unraveled the world's mysteries! Oh! To love- I will then take my education and seek career of love. I believe love is the most precious, yet most scarce commodity of our world today. My sister's serious illness has stirred up in me a desire to combat those diseases which so many millions of people and their families battle everyday.

I will bring love to people by finding ways to cure auto-immune diseases such as my sister's. This is not a dream, but an obligation. And Oh! To live- In life, I will make many mistakes! Each one will bring me new wisdom and more maturity. I will have many successes! Each one will bring me new confidence in standards, and make me more able to help people. Those are my goals: to learn everything I can, love everyone who will let me, and live a life full of experiences, good and bad..
