questionnaire for high school

This isn't really a media request, but I was unsure of what forum in which to post. Below is a questionnaire for my research for a school project. If anybody is able to fill it out and send it back to me in a private message, that would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers, Amy.

I will PM you my answers

I will PM you my answers tonight.

The question is....will you be able/courageous/adult enough to sacrifice that which merely pleases you...for that which will truly fulfill you? That is the question of personal growth.
