    creat a glorious future

    I think the phrase "creat a glorious future" is Chinglish.
    Could I make the following correction:
    I'm sure I'll work hard at school to have a glorious future and to repay your kindness.

    "Glorious" is maybe a bit much. How about "successful"?

    Prepare for a successful future!
    Work hard in school and prepare yourself for a successful future!
