I believe that coding is my best skill right now. Computer science was always something I was interested in when I was growing up due to the amount of technology I was surrounded by as a child. I knew I wanted to do something computer-related when I grew older because I was always interested in how developers created their software. Through code, I believe I can generate and formulate ideas, review possible solutions, and then execute them to my liking. The versatility and creativity of this area of study inspired me to become a great computer scientist. I plan on improving my coding skills by going to a 4-year university and utilizing this to make applications that help others who are in need. I personally was not fortunate enough to live the best life here in America, ever since my mother passed away when I was thirteen. After my mom passed away, my sister was unable to get a college education due to the small amount of money we had left. With her still not being able to pursue a college education, I feel like it is my responsibility to do what my sister always wanted to do and go to college. With my degree, I would not only love to create websites for people who are less fortunate, but I also personally want to enable medical and especially economic companies to conduct their business in a much more efficient and productive way. In my opinion, these two sectors severely affect citizens in any country, and creating applications or websites to help them would not only accelerate the economy and healthcare progress but improve the standard of living in general.

The best skill I possess is perseverance, especially in some of the most challenging times in my life. I have used my determination to succeed throughout my struggles, not allowing the obstacles I have faced to stop me from achieving my goals. Perseverance helps define who I am, and as I face life, I use it every step of the way to overcome challenges. For instance, when I was recovering from an eating disorder, I used my perseverance to continue, even when I wanted to give up. I often wanted to fall back, but my determination to recover stopped me from relapsing. Ultimately, this perseverance allowed me to continue working on myself and my academics, creating who I am today. Not only have I used perseverance in my past, but I also continue to improve it in every facet of my life. Even in my shortcomings and my struggles with my mental health, I face life with the dedication to succeed and perseverance to not let life throw me down. Currently, I am struggling with anxiety, but through my worry, I am improving my persistence to find coping skills and talk back to my fear. My perseverance leads me to become who I am today, helping shape the person I want to become and follow my future goals. Without it, I would not be where I am or who I am; It is my greatest strength and most vital skill.
