I am satisfied with your post because it is an accurate representation of perseverance and what it means to you. You also give context and an example from a popular book series. One thing you said that stood out to me was “Because I am a high school student there is a lot of pressure” I think this is interesting because high school students are able to relate to you and your story.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other.
