A fighter. Just like my favourite top 3; Sakata Gintoki, Uzumaki Naruto, and Midoriya Izuku, I never give up. I learned from All Might that I must go beyond to become great. Midoriya taught me that I must work as twice as hard as everyone else to achieve what I always longed for. Gintoki showed me that even if I went through hard times that I'm still a strong fighter that turns into beast mode whenever needed. Naruto inspired me that even if everyone told me that I wasn't good enough for my dream then I should never give up and do better than my best to achieve it.. So I will. I will go beyond.
