How to use shoot for in a sentence?

  1. Ivanka Trump:

    I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters, i believe my father, I know my father. Soon after, Handler took to Twitter to share an image from a 1996 photo shoot for Vanity Fair that shows her sitting on her father’s lap, caressing his face and staring at him at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

  2. Laila Shabir:

    The list of things that I couldn’t do, or shouldn’t do, was much longer than the things that I was allowed to do, so there was a lot of conflict inside me, because at home my parents were constantly telling me that I should dream big, and shoot for the stars. And they put all these incredible role models in front of me like Margaret Thatcher and Benazir Bhutto and I was supposed to be like them. But the minute I stepped out of my home, I was told the exact opposite. That I was dreaming too big, that if I wouldn’t stop looking at the sky I would stumble and fall on my face.

  3. Danish Siddiqui:

    While I enjoy covering news stories — from business to politics to sports — what I enjoy most is capturing the human face of a breaking story, i shoot for the common man who wants to see and feel a story from a place where he can't be present himself.

  4. Jared Allen:

    You tell people that and they think that's very boastful, very aggressive. But setting mediocre goals is setting yourself up for mediocrity, i always like to shoot for the moon and see what happens.

  5. Jurgen Klopp.Prior:

    It was a brilliant situation, it makes sense for a striker to go dribbling in the box because it's difficult for the defender to defend it clear. He was in a brilliant position in that moment -- if he could shoot, for sure it was a big chance as well.
