If you could change anything about the world, what would it be? If I could change anything about the world, I would take out jealousy. Jealousy is the root of all evil which leads to most of the problems we face around the world.
What has been your most significant accomplishment in life? Why? My most significant accomplishment in life is becoming who I am today. At the age of 17, I already feel like I am successful. I am independent and ready to overcome any obstacle my future has to offer.
Who would you consider to be your role model and why? I consider my dad to be my role model. He inspires me to do better and be better than I am. He raised me to become successful, and also to always remember that we are all equal despite what car we drive or where we live. One day I plan to raise my children the way he has raised me.
