My Personal Values

Each and every one of us has many personal values. These values are important to us. They are the rules that we live by. There are three main values that guide me.

Getting a good education is my most important value. My family has suffered through a war and lost almost everything, the war has lasted for 20 years. Now education has given me a chance to get some of these things back. I learned about the value of education from my grandfather. My grandfather said that education can take me anywhere. I beleive he is right.

Respect for the Hmong culture is my next most important value. I will never forget where I came from. I won’t forget what language I speak. I won’t forget what food I eat, or what my religion is. I also learned this value from my grandfather. He told me never to forget who I am. One day it will help me get my people back together.

Beleiving in love is my third most important value. I know that someone is and always will be there for me. Someone will be there in bad times or in good times. There will always be someone who cares a lot about me and know how I feel. I learned this value from my friends, my cousins, also from a radio station I listen to.

I will always value education, my culture, and the power of love. These three values may not be important to some other people, but they will guide me forever. They will help me do many good things in life.
