Gabriel’s Motivation

English Empowerment Center Uncategorized

Gabriel expresses what gives her the drive and the motivation to learn English and make improvements. Her essay is short, but her positivity, kindness, and hopeful outlook for a better tomorrow overflow on the page. At LCNV, this kind of passion from our ELL learners motivates us every day. Enjoy Gabriel’s essay below:

“Since I started my English class, I started to understand what is happening around me. I know that I am responsible for learning this language. Very soon I can get a better job and I can express my opinions at work. I can be more sociable and can go to eat at any restaurant, and I can express my opinion to help other people. I know that my effort will be worth it because I am on the way to learning and I will soon reach my goal.”
