Determination and Perseverance

The video I made talks about my hobbies and the perseverance I show to practice them even though I don´t have all the needed things to do it.

It is kind of funny, however, it is not only to have fun but there is a message behind it, a message that I want to send to all of the students and my message is, "never give up, perseverance and determination can make the difference between achieve your goals or let them go"

I want to send this message because I think all of us need it, especially students. This is something that is really important in my life because even though i am actually studying at Finland as an exchange student is was not easy at all to come here. I was discouraged not to come and the saddest thing was that even my own father told me to stop dreaming such a thing because it was impossible for me to do it due to the lack of money, but I persevered, I work hard, I did my best and now I am here trying to pursue an education of quality. Unfortunately I don´t have extra money to go and visit other places, and sometimes I feel so isolated from the world because the place where I am living actually, Pietarsaari, is really small and where ever I go I just see trees and lakes.

I would love go to Italy because I fell in love with Tuscany since the first time I read an article about that place in one of the national geographic magazines. I would love to taste the authentic Italian´s food and wine. I would also love to be in Venice and Rome. But above all I want to show everybody, I want to show my father and myself that there is nothing impossible when you believe it and persevere. I want to show also that if we change our attitude to whatever circumstances we have we can change our whole life for the best. Perseverance and determination is not about be happy, it means to make and effort, work hard, and do our best to achieve our goals without affecting others, on the contrary being a good example for them to imitate.
