Two of my core values are independence and accomplishment. Having independence as one of my core values allows me to understand how it feels to be an adult, and to be able to do things on my own with no help. Being independent is such a great step in anyone’s lives, you’ll be able to show yourself and others how capable you are of doing things without having to depend on someone. Having accomplishments in my life is so valuable to me because I want to be able to tell my family members or kids that I accomplished so many things at a certain age. Although, I doubt myself so much whatever I put my mind to I end up accomplishing those things. 

Independence relates to my goals for the future because as I get older, move out my mom’s place, and potentially move out of New York I need to learn how to do things on my own. Soon I’ll be paying bills, and living on my own so I’ll be growing on my own. Also, as I get older I want to accomplish many things such as graduating, getting my own place/car, a great job mainly at a certain age. I don’t want to be in my late 30s regretting not accomplishing all my goals in my teens/my twenties. Basically, I just want my life to be figured out at an early age because I don’t want to have struggles, and regrets. 

I feel like improving my communication skills will help me achieve these goals by me allowing myself to be more vocal about certain things I want to get done, and certain things that I want to be heard by others. I tend to stay in a bubble, and keep things to myself because I feel like people don’t care about what I have to say but that isn’t always the case sometimes. I’m slowly coming out of my comfortable zone, and I communicate more with others. Being able to have good communication skills would take me a long way once I branch out as I get older.
