Just Asking @ Mineola HS

Mineola High School: What is success? What does success mean to you?

 

Marissa Karasz
Sophomore

“Success often comes with large amounts of dedication and effort, as it usually means achieving goals set far in the past. It is the feeling of content when everything turns out the way it was intended to, or sometimes even better than planned. To me, success would be following my dreams to build a career in the fashion business, becoming a better athlete, and having stronger relationships with my friends and family.”

Shaina Gross
 Freshman

“Success means finally getting to where you want to be and being happy and perfectly satisfied with yourself because of it. To me success means finally achieving all your goals and being where you want to be.”

 

Kristen Brenes
Sophomore

“Success doesn’t come easy. Sometimes it comes after repeated failures. You try again and again. You don’t give up. Success to me is learning from your failure and using that knowledge to reach a goal.”

 

Scott Shannon 
Junior

“Success is something that can be different to each individual. Success is to do what you want to do and what makes you happy and if you want to eventually share that happiness. Success to me means to make yourself someone you’d be proud of. “

 

Daniela Borges
Sophomore  

“To me, success means that you have achieved everything you could possibly want in life. My own personal definition of success, is synonymous with Veterinarian as that is my dream job.”

 

Andrew Pereira
Junior 

“Success is when you complete a goal you’ve been trying to reach. Success to me means reaching my goals and making new ones that are harder than the last and along the way also helping others to reach theirs.”
