“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Six years ago, I left Bulgaria to come to the land of endless opportunities, the United States. My Grandma told me: "Remember, no matter how hard it gets, you can make it! You are my inspiration for life." I've been through a lot since then. However, I've always known that I'm not alone. My family and friends have been with me, supporting me and having faith in me. I'm sure all of us can't wait to go out in the bright, beautiful world and do wonderful things. I have many great ideas and there are so many possibilities, so many choices! But, above all, I want to be a kind and honest person and stay truthful to who I am and where I come from. Everything else will come along because nothing is impossible. And, Grandma, I hope you are proud of me!
