When you hear the word “unstoppable,” you may think of being “unrelenting,” “persevering,” or “relentless.” In an essay
define how you overcame an obstacle or obstacles by relating an experience you have had where you were not stopped,
reached the goal you had set for yourself, and reflect on what you gained from that experience that will help you to remain
unstoppable in the future and help others do the same.
