What are goals? Are they just plans that you make yourself for the future? Or are they a list of what you hope to accomplish in life? Well me personally, I believe my goals are challenges I set for myself to hopefully overcome throughout my life so that I can become something more.
There is a lot of career options out there that where recommended to me but many different people. But ever since I was a little boy there was always one thing I wanted to be… a Chef.

Right now I am currently taking a culinary arts class that is teaching me the basics but I also joined Skills US, a club that you get to go compete for scholarships. But my plan is to take this year in the class I am in and next year takes Culinary Arts at the Career Center and the year after that advanced...
