Setting goals for the future is important to me, because it gives me motivation to meet that point when it comes time. To start with, the first goal I have for my future is to graduate from Verdigre High School in the spring of 2016. This mark is almost met, but still seems far away. It will always be a destination of mine, until it is reached. Secondly, the next goal of mine is to attend a college in Nebraska, to become a Physical Therapist Assistant. I will do this by attending a Community College for two years and then possibly move on to a four year college and become a Physical Therapist.

Another achievement I strive for in sports is to receive a varsity letter at the end of the year. In the past three years I have lettered in basketball three times and volleyball twice. When it comes to my job as a waitress, I gained higher pay and more trust by working harder. For example, when I picked up more hours for the first time this past summer, I confirmed that I was committed to my boss. The result of this was a higher wage. Another thing hard work got me was trust from my boss and employees. They knew that I could perform my best and had no problem with me being there more. I enjoy the job I have and everybody that I work with. Hard work does pay off, but sometimes the rewards aren’t as pleasing as the satisfaction I get from putting my best effort
