2016 was just another year for me.
But I know as the new year comes, 2017
I will grow smarter, more responsible, and ready to take on new challenges.
2017 is the year I graduate.
2017 is the year I will leave high school behind.
Last year, I faced a lot of challenges.
I know there are more to come, but challenges are what make me who I am.
Overcoming new challenges will push me.
They'll push me to become a better Karissa.
With the new year coming,
I will push myself and strive to end my last year right.
