    Re: full of drive

    As a Brit, but not a teacher, I would advise as follows:

    The Oxford English Dictionary can help:

    AskOxford: drive
    noun

    3 an innate, biologically determined urge. 4 an organized effort to achieve a particular purpose. 5 determination and ambition.

    Someone who is "full of drive" is full of Item 3, 4 &/or 5 above.

    Hope this helps.

    PS Please find below a modified version of the Webster's Dictionary definition of an "avatar":

    Avatar - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    1: the incarnation of a Hindu deity (as Vishnu)
    4: an electronic image, selected by a computer user, to represent themselves.

    She is full of drive, meaning she is very lively and energetic.

    His music is full of drive, I could dance all the time when listening to the songs.


    What is the meaning of the word "avatar" in modern usage.

    Apart from the classical meaning, an archetype or the incarnation of a Hindu deity, nowadays you often find the term on the internet. There, an avatar is a small graphic you can upload to put it into your profile.
