If I were principal for a day: I would make it bring your dog to school day

People who have been an inspiration to me include: My parents and older sister.
Because: No matter what I have been apart they have always supported me and been my biggest fans even when trying something new. My family has always pushed me to do my best and I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish many of my goals without their support.

My advice to parents: Always push your kids to their full potential, but make sure to try and check in with them every once in awhile to see how things are going.
