This is one thing that pops in my head when I think of the words self respect. The only way to go far in life is to try hard in everything you do, which includes doing your work. This is a photo of my friend Jovanni sitting in the library doing his homework. I made the pencil red because that is the main focus of the picture. I wanted the audience to recognize the hard work and dedication in his face.
I believe that education is key. A lot of people take free education in the United States for granted and every once in a while you have to sit back and realize that the opportunity of having free education is a blessing. In high school, you r future is based upon whether or not you graduate. That also means it depends on whether or not you do your work. Respect yourself. Respect your ability to learn and go forward in your education. There are many advantages to doing your work and succeeding in school. Although college is not free, it could be if you work your hardest and possibly be capable of getting a scholarship. Also I wanted to show that you should respect your school. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you what I think it means to respect yourself.
