Life Is Full Of Challenges

Extracts from this document...


LIFE IS FULL OF CHALLENGES Throughout my life I have always been really ambitious in what I wanted to achieve. To do this I have faced many challenges and I probably will continue to do so throughout my adult life. The first challenge that I remember very clearly was when my mum told me I would be going to a private school for my secondary education. She put my name down for two schools, St Columbus and Craigholme.

If I manage to do this then I will have achieved the first part of my goals and overcome many challenges in the process. The last major challenge in my education is getting a place in either St Andrews University or Cambridge University.
