I chosen Booker T. Washington as my historical figure because he was an educator, and I enjoy learning. I learned from Booker T. Washington that I can dream big and that the future is in my hand, and that I can achieve to the highest level as long as I put my mind to it.

A quote said from Booker T. Washington was: “ Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than to be in bad company”. I think this quote means that we should only be with positive people and that being alone is better than being with negative people. Another quote that was said from Booker T. Washington: “ Character, not circumstances, makes the person.” I think that this quote means that your character is what matters most not the things that are affected by your character.
