Throughout people’s young life they are asked this question over and over again,

“what do you want to be when you grow up”.

Well the answer to that can be a life changer. One of the most common answers is a popstar, rockstar, or go pro in some sport. That they can do if they choose. Alot of people who are living lives that they did not wish to choose will say,

“Well, It’s not my fault I’m doing this”.

You choose this, You choose what happens to you.

This will probably be the shortest essay you’ve ever read but I hope I got the message out. We have the power to choose our own future, This I Believe
