I kick the ball with full strength and power. My friend misses the pass, I can feel the frustration and anger building on me. I see that my friend has managed to get the ball again and passes it on back to me. I aim for the goal post, without thinking about anything, I strike for it. The ball rolls with full power toward the goal post and enters the post. With that, it is a goal and my team wins the game. Even though this football game was with my friends in the nearest open space from my home, it felt great. I acknowledge the passion one has whether it is big or small determination is all that matters.
Warm greeting everyone, I am Subham Shrestha from Kanti Ishwori Rajya Laxmi Secondary School. I study in grade six. I have a cheerful and friendly personality. My interest not only limits football but I am also curious about my studies. My favorite subject is Nepali, I love how I can relate to all the poems, stories and plays from my Nepali coursebook. I also realize that I need to work on Science as I find it difficult to understand. I have also actively participated in Katha Bunaun: Photo Edition programs organized by Canopy Nepal.
The inspiration of my life is Cristiano Ronald, I not only adore his football skills but also love his dedication and determination. His success story always inspires me to start from small and end up big. I am very grateful for everything I have got from my family, friends and most especially CANSHIP. I promise to utilize all the needs and resources I have got till now. Even though I sometimes lose track, I always remind myself to get back.
I am just thirteen and I have already realized thirteen reasons why I need to achieve my dreams, thirteen reasons why I need to be determined and thirteen reasons why I should be grateful. In the upcoming years, I will realize and develop more reasons not limiting to thirteen. I look forward to my future positively.
