I have faith in myself,

I have faith in my teachers.

I will accept my duties and responsibilities.

I respect others and seek their respect.

I have self-respect,

I have self-control.

I can learn if I study hard,

I will learn because I will study hard.

I love myself and loving myself,

I will be myself and know myself.

I am the one who is talking!
