One dollar bill

Money is the sole object everyone needs and strives to achieve throughout their life. There is no better feeling than to have a stack of cash and knowing there is nothing that you want or need you can’t have. Moving from Ghana to America the purpose of the migration was to seize the great money making opportunities and the better life and fortune. I remember the time I got my first dollar bill, it was the first day of school and I was about to part from my mom, she gave me a dollar. It was only till a couple weeks later that I realized this was my allowance I received a dollar a day from Monday till Friday. At the time I was little so I really didn't use the money I just put in a case where I saved it. However even though I receive way more than that now I realize how much more I saved back then. Money in general is a very important object in life it’s also a main reason education is so important to me. Its known that education allows for more opportunity to attain money and the “more money the more power”  Some spend money like it’s nothing but because it's the root to success it’s one thing I will always need and though it may seem shallow in this world money is a major key to success thus being important to me and those who strive for success.
