Why is confirmation important to me?

Confirmation is important to me in many ways.
The following three ways are the most important to me:

First, is that I want to be closer to God and more involved in the Church. Right now I do not think that my relationship with God and the Church is as strong as it could be. With my confirmation I hope to make it stronger.

Second, I would like to set a good example to my friends who have not received their confirmation. I believe that all good Catholics should be confirmed.

Last, and most important to me, would be to help set a good example to my little sister and younger cousins. Most of them look up to me so I hope to do right, so that they can too.
Those are my three reasons why confirmation is important to me.
