    Can you correct my sentence, please!

    Hello!

    Can you please correct my sentence! Which way to say it is the right one?

    Thank you all!

    These experiences
    instilled in me the desire to own and manage my own business someday and from then on I have or was determined to place my education and my future career at the center of my life.

    These experiences instilled in me the desire to own and manage my own business someday; and to that end I have been determined to place my education and my future career at the centre of my life.

    center : if this is to an American college or company
    centre : if to anywhere in Europe and most other places in the world

    Hi

    ...have been determined suggests you still are determined.

    ...was determined is OK but suggests that your determination was temporary.
