I have met a lot of people while attending college who believes in my potential to succeed. I have my colleagues at FSM, the Seita program and supporting friends who push me forward.
I have so many favorite songs! Kelly Clarkston-Stronger. I love this song because it makes me feel empowered when I’m not feeling so great. Also it’s just a really upbeat song and all upbeat songs make me want to dance.
I remind myself of all the people who believe in me and who want to see me succeed. I remind myself of how far I’ve come and how close I am to reaching my goals. I have to remember that I am stronger than I think. I have made it through many obstacles and I’m a fighter, a survivor.
