"Clairbourn Changed Me"
The most important thing I've learned at Clairbourn is to work hard and to keep walking the road. I came here with a bad education and no interest in academics at all. I didn’t know what to do, but Clairbourn changed that for me. I started with slow progress, studied harder, and eventually started getting A's as time went on.
I've also learned that every failure is another chance to improve. I had to learn to keep going and not let failures make me give up or slow me down. By my 8th-grade year, my hard-work had paid off. I was on the Honor Roll and I also had a great sports year as the Football MVP and a participant in four sports. As Dwayne Johnson says “Success isn't always about greatness. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.“
I am grateful for many things. I am grateful for my parents for always supporting me and pushing me to work harder. I am grateful for my sister and brother for being great siblings. I am grateful for my friends for putting a smile on my face and for being such great friends that I count them as brothers. I am grateful for my great teachers who taught me well, and I am grateful to go to a great school.
