    “The future belongs to the discontented.” I agree with this quote because the future definitely does belong to the discontented. In my opinion, the discontented represents everyone. No one can truly ever stay content for long without wanting to better their current situation. Even the richest man in America, Bill Gates, still feels the need to change the future – his and the world’s. I think it is great that the future belongs to those who are dissatisfied, and I believe that it does because of many reasons such as human nature and the American Dream.…

    Innovation has become priority in large companies around the world because innovation is what will keep companies ahead of its competitors in order to sustain itself in the economy. One of the most innovative companies in the world currently is Jeff Bezos' Amazon.com, Inc. Amazon is an American multinational electronic commerce company that is the world's largest online retailer. One of its largest competitors in the market right now is eBay. Amazon's innovative technologies and ideas has propelled the company drastically in the last five to ten years. Just five years ago, Amazon's stock prices were at around 30 dollars a share and recently has gone up over 200 dollars a share. Whereas competitor eBay was around 40 dollars a share five years ago and is still around 40 dollars a share currently. In terms of selling products Amazon has made itself extremely convenient, reliable, and very user-friendly. Although both eBay and Amazon sell all sorts of products that retailers and individuals wish to sell, Amazon has taken the next step by developing its own products. Amazon first started with the creation of the Kindle to compete with book companies. The Kindle allowed users to read thousands upon thousands of books that are easily purchased within one small convenient hand-held device. Amazon then moved on and developed a cloud-based network which is the next big innovation in technology. Amazon's cloud computation servers allow people to have extremely fast web-browsing and shopping capabilities off of Amazon's electronic store. Music, books, and movies can be directly purchased through Amazon's network and became a huge part of profit in the company. The development of the Kindle fire has optimized the use of the cloud network and is at the top of competition in the tablet technology market.

    I believe the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences at Duke is an excellent match for me. I believe college should not be merely a gateway to the work force; it should educate the student in a variety of subjects and prepare him or her for the range of challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in life. I have always been a curious person and enjoy reading all kinds of literature and nonfiction. In high school I excelled in history, English, AP psychology, and other liberal arts subjects. I have not yet decided on a major, but when I do, it will almost certainly be in the liberal arts, such as history or political science. I know that Trinity College is very strong in these areas. But regardless of my major, I want to receive a broad education that spans a variety of areas in the liberal arts, so that I will graduate as not only a viable job prospect, but also as a well-rounded and learned adult who can make diverse and valuable contributions to my community. I believe Duke’s Trinity College will help me grow and becomeBut think about what the prompt is actually asking: "discuss why you consider Duke a good match for you. Is there something in particular at Duke that attracts you?"…
