"I am the success of Anchorage because I always think ahead and encourage myself to go out of my comfort zone. I don't wait for the opportunities to come straight to me, I create my own. Life is too short for me to wait and dwell over the past. I recognize my accomplishments, even if they are small and I celebrate. I also plan my next accordingly. I always try my very best to not only make myself happy but also, everyone around me. I am a success of Anchorage because when people tell me I can't, I don't simply say that I can... I show that I can. All those factors that make me successful are all thanks to the amazing people in my life: my parents, siblings, teachers, and classmates."
