Achieving a 4.0 upon graduating high school. This goal is important because my hardwork and dedication to work towards making exemplary grades will be reflected within my GPA. I know that having exemplary grades is appealing when applying for colleges and scholarships. My parents and friends are supportive and that helps me work towards achieving my goal making myself proud as well as them. I learn that in order to order to achieve my goal not only do I set the goal but I work towards accomplishing my goal. Yes I am still working towards my goal I currently have a 3.83 GPA. I am working towards making straight A’s to increase my GPA per each marking period.
