Not everyone has a bridge to connect them to opportunities or their goals. Some people have to find another way to get there. Coming from a person who has faced many disappointments and struggled with road block after road block, I have learned to enjoy the journey. I will get there when I get there. Tenacity and determination is my middle name. I am becoming the person that I'm supposed to be, not who I always imagined myself becoming. I am learning that who you are has very little to benefit yourself, but moreso to benefit other people in some kind of way. The power of words and humanity is real. Be selfless, be kind, be forgiving but not foolish, be understanding, be amazing, be authentic, be YOU!
