In high school, my parents were my big motivators, they constantly pushed me to take that extra step, to study hard, to attend extracurricular organizations and such. It wasn’t so much that I enjoyed practicing my instrument or studying, but rather I felt that it was the best way to make my parents happy. Now, in college however, people do things out of their own willpower, there’s no more “I have to” it’s just “I want to”. That’s why I see some of the older college students as my role models and my inspirations, listening to some of their stories about how they were able to push through difficult times and continue loving what they do is really good motivation. I want to learn from them as much as I can and hopefully find success.
