Leslie hopes in graduating with an Associate Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Mrs. Queen and Mr. Silva have both affected her learning experience positively because they are motivating and make her feel capable. Her favorite subjects are math and physics. The reason she enjoys these subjects is that these subjects allow her to come to an exact answer. In the other hand, she dislikes English because she believes literature should be open for interpretation and often, there isn’t a definite answer. Because she enjoys math and physics, she thinks they are her academic strengths. Leslie participates in UIL Math and Number Sense and is part of FBLA.
She wants to attend college to further her education because she wants to be successful financially, to live a happy life and make her parents and herself proud. One of her goals is to obtain a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. Achieving her goal means that she’ll be able to give back to the people in need. Something that is important to her is her education, as well as kindness.
