Dear Mom and Dad,
I apologize for not being the best student over the last few years and I’m sorry for causing so many problems at home. Over the next four years, I hope to prove to you that I am capable of taking of care of myself. I also hope to prove to you that I can be successful and make it into UCLA. I want you to know that I will work hard and get a high paying job in the future and take care of both of you when I’m rich. I promise to prove it.
