Evaluation of Myself

I am currently in the midst of searching for a summer internship. I thought it was a good time to take a good look at my personal goals, my mission, and my life in general. It is slightly scary for me to be so personal on my blog instead of evaluating the designs of someone else, but I think it will be beneficial.

  • To always base my decisions on my spiritual beliefs and never betray them for success or money
  • To make a positive impact on the people and places I come in contact with throughout my life
