The animal that I feel represents me best is the efficient cheetah. This animal best represents my ability to overcome interruptions, physical and mental fatigue, and my ability to be efficient.
The first and most important trait of the cheetah is efficiency. I am extremely efficient at home because I perform a lot of chores to help around the house. I'm very efficient when it comes to doing the yard work and other outdoor tasks at my home.
The next characteristic is the ability to overcome physical and mental fatigue. This ability helps when the going gets tough and things get hard; you can fight to get through it.

All of these traits will help me accomplish my many tasks this school year. My efficiency will keep me "on the ball", producing my best work. My...
