My name is Rachael Bavaro and I was born in Salem, Massachusetts on February 23, 1996. I was raised in Lynn, where I currently reside. I am a senior this year at Lynn English High School. Throughout elementary and middle school, I struggled greatly with performing to academic standards, especially in mathematics. I was placed in academic support classes and was on a 504 plan until I was in 7th grade. I managed to turn myself around, making the honor roll numerous times in middle school.
Ambition drives me. Every morning my feet hit the floor means another day closer to my dream. Passion and ambition are two words that I overuse on a daily basis; they are not synonymous, but rather dependent on one another. To me, passion is the importance of having a love for what you do. I believe that your passion should galvanize you, challenge you, and drive you every day. Ambition is what you have when it is 1 AM and you are still up studying for that test. A person who is ambitious gets things done not because she has to, but because she has a gnawing desire inside of her to succeed.
I am the kind of young woman who is driven by the doubt of others. If others think I can't, then I have to.
