"I would like to begin by expressing my gratitude for the opportunity I've been given to share with you a little about my future plans, and express my gratitude to those who have helped me stand where I am today..I hope to become an ESOL teacher and travel to different states and countries to teach, and encourage the student I teach to pursue a higher education. I have many objectives and I pray that I continue with my goal to not only grow as a person; but also help others along the way. "
