The factors which attribute to my success are: my hard work and passion toward about education. One of my teachers said, “There is nothing impossible; if you want to achieve something then nobody can stop you.” These factors attribute to my success. 20. Discuss the subjects in which you had difficulty. What factors do you believe contributed to your difficulties? How have you dealt with them so they will not cause problems for you again? In which areas have you experienced improvement? What problem areas remain? In India, I had some difficulties in Math because I never took it serious. In India, I studied just because my parents wanted me to study. I didn’t have any motive in my life. About two and half year ago I came to United States; I figured that out why I study; I study for myself to fulfill my dreams and ambitions. Also, when I was newcomer my reading and writing skills were not so good. I studied hard, read books, practiced in writing. When I was new in U.S., I barely knew English. I was scared about everything that was happening in my life. I was scared about everything that was happening in my life because I didn’t really know English very much.
