Throughout my middle and high school years, I took my studies very seriously instead of always hanging out with friends. Because of this, I was made fun of. I have not let this stop me because even though I'm a nerd I will get farther in life than they ever will. I like the way my life is headed and absolutely nothing will stop me from reaching my goal. I'm a nerd and that's cool with me because I follow this key piece of advice from Wedding Crashers, "No excuses, play like a champion".
