Whenever I mention my high school career with others, one of my classmate, Suri, will always clearly emerge in my mind. She is not my closest friend, however, Suri is the one who effects me the most in my entire life. She shows me how to chase and persistent on dreams. She is the girl who i deeply admire.
when i first came to my class, Suri was the one who impressed me the most, not for her beauty, but her unusual clothes. She always wore short skirts, high heels, and all colorful outfits that were inappropriate to our age, therefore, she was labeled as an Alien who needed to stay away with. During my entire freshman, we had never talked. Nevertheless, the ugly gossip about her seemed ceaseless. Things got to change after Suri moved to our dormitory accidentally at my second year of high school.
I was so upset when I heard Suri was going to move in at the first place, however, I started to know her and found out she was a nice girl. Suri told me she wanted to be a singer. She would do whatever to achieve her dream. She had attended all kinds of singing competition, thus, she had never won any awards back. I still remember the first time when Suri sang for us. It was so amazing. We became friends after she opened her mind with me and I became her little fan and followed her whenever she participated in the singing contests. However, it was very hard to be a singer in my country unless you have plenty of money or a good background at that time. After we graduated, we drifted apart. I went to college, she was still chasing her dream. Suri always told me ” If you have a dream, chase it, work hard for it. Eventually, you will get it.”
I came to the United States a few years later and we lost contact with each other. However, the last time that I head news from her, she was still doing what we used to do and have not given up.
Suri is a special person in my life who I will never forget. Her persistence, her striving, always affect my life. Her words always come up in my mind. She teaches me how to chase dreams.
