  7. Best Work Reflection Today, I received an award for being on the honor roll – in fact, I am the only person on the honor roll! Looking at this award, it reminds me of all the work I put into working – how many times I choose to work from dawn until dusk on my classes, staying after school for two hours every day, working in the mornings before school and on the weekend – all that work is reflected in that I managed to not only complete my classes, but to earn a 3.8 GPA. I went as fast as I could while still doing my best. I am very proud of myself, and I hope that I can do even better this semester, though I am currently having difficulties. I’ll be attending college this semester, which means I will stepping to an even harder and more challenging curriculum. I hope – no, I WILL – match my GPA last semester with my GPA this semester, both at KPA and at Green River College. In a real sense, this award shows what I am really capable of when I do my best and go the extra mile. I’ve always been told I have great potential, but now I can say something even better. I can say I have great success.
