Some of my attributes are positive and I hope to exemplify them even more in the future. I hope that I will continue to put my family and friends first in my life and in my decisions. I want to have a wife and two kids who I am able to provide for and who will know that I love them and want what is best for them.

A classmate had figured out the correct answers to an online homework quiz that we had unlimited attempts for. I struggled with this assignment and was very tempted to copy his answers so that I would get a better grade. No matter how much I tried to justify to myself that I wasn’t “copying” so much as “getting help from a classmate” I couldn’t bring myself to copy his answers because I felt that doing so would be cheating. Even for a small ten-point homework assignment my conscience wouldn’t allow me to do something I considered unethical. While this is a small example, I feel that it exemplifies how I live my life and make my
