Samira Thrower

I am a person who loves to go to school and learn new things. I have always been a person who enjoys school and the environment. I am a rising senior at Simon Gratz Mastery Charter High School and i plan on becoming valedictorian this year. My goals after high school are to go straight to college and earn my masters degree and become a teacher. I want to teach children and give them the knowledge that they will need to help them get through life. I am a person who feels that all of my teachers haven’t given me the knowledge that i need in life, but i believe that i won’t make the same mistake that they did. I can’t wait to finish high school and let the world see what i am capable of. People say “your life has begun once you are born”, but i say that “as soon as you reach college, your life has just begun and its up to you to make it your own”.
