Imagine yourself in 10 years. Describe. What does your life look like? Where do you live? Who do you live with? What do you do for a living? Are you married? Do you have children? Do you live in Santa Maria, have you moved away? where? why?
Describe the world you come from -- for example, your family, community or school -- and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
- The majority of your response should be the description of your world.
- While describing your wold, don't forget to add how the world has influenced your development as a student or as a person.
