NOTABLE QUOTES:

I have everything I need to get into these schools.
I was just so sick and tired of always focusing on the negative and the negative and the negative.
But here’s the catch: I can’t be fake with myself. I have to be authentic with myself.
This is not rocket science.
If you keep thinking it’s impossible, then it will be impossible!
You could tell when you read my essay that, '‘This person, this Julie Kim person, is dead serious about what her passion is.``
