Hi my name is Katherine. I'm 16 years old, so I don't really know anything about life. I find myself trying to look online for as much information as I can. I feel like the most suggested tip I see these days is the fact that college is not the only option after high school. There's always specialty school or something, but I don't really know much about that. They always have those examples of very successful people who did not graduate from college who because wildly successful (Bill Gates and Zuckerberg to name a couple) but these individuals were smart and they seemed to have luck on their side. To be honest, I don't believe that I can become one of those lucky people, so I work hard to do what I can even though I don't have an end goal of what I want to do. really admire those who can work their butt off for that one goal that they want to do, they are extremely driven and so optimistic about their future. The hardest part is figuring out what I'm working towards in school. With 7 billion people in the world it seems unlikely that I, or anyone else in my school will be the next world leader.
On a lighter note, this doesn't change the fact that I try to be a fun person to be around. The people that I meet will never meet 7 billion people so I want to be a fun person to talk to. I'm not that great at making speeches or talking to a crowd like this one but I do like to talk to people one on one! When I do talk to people, I'm always a bit different around the people I'm with. I can fangirl over boybands or attempt to have an somewhat intelligent conversation (because I consider myself to be somewhat intelligent). I like having many hobbies so hopefully I can relate to other teens that I talk to.
I think I gave more thought to this than most of my English essays...
This was fun (on my part anyways),
