"Why The University of Texas at Austin should accept me"
To me, family is the most important thing. I am very close to my immediate family and even my extended family. My family supports me, encourages me and will always be there for me. I can't think of one thing that they wouldn't do for me.
One really interesting thing about my family is the fact that on my dad's side, we have a Ranch. It is more like a Lakehouse because we don't have cattle or horses, but we still call it a Ranch. It is located on Lake Limestone or in Limestone County. My Ranch has given me the opportunity to become even closer with my family.
What makes me UNIQUE
I do have a few things that separate me from others. One thing is that I have had my boater's license since I was thirteen. This means that I can drive boats and other water vehicles by myself. The water, whether its a lake, ocean or river, has always been a big part of my life. As mentioned in the family section, we have a Ranch. I have been going up there for as long as I can remember. At my Ranch, I have learned many important things. I have learned how to drive various vehicles, four-wheelers, cars, boats and wave-runners included. My Ranch has taught me many important lessons and has made me more responsible, trustworthy and independent.
Another thing that makes me stand out, is that I have always gotten "A" averages. Ever since I was in elementary school, I have always gotten A's. It is something I am very proud of and work very hard for.
