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.

Hi

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

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