For all my life, I did not imagine that I would become who I am today because my circumstances made me think I was just passing through life and just survive. This picture here carries a lot of memories and a reminder of what it means to choose hope and to keep going even when you feel like your strength is fading.

Whenever I share my story mostly what I get is a ‘woishe‘ of feeling(pity) or just sad look and some wondering why am not crying whenever I share such stories. I was listening to a talk by Oprah and she shared something like really amazing I thought I should share ‘’ we should own our stories, own our place in the world and sing it LOUD no matter how different we will sound from everyone else.’’ This quote just sums up my life in every aspect. It is only when I came to this realisation, I began to see light and embraced who I was something that I really struggled with for a long time.
Sometimes I wished things were different but what have come to learn and appreciate about my journey is that no one is ever a mistake and everything we go through is only a path to our purpose in life. I do not look back and weep anymore because I found a purpose in my life and to just tell everyone else who feels like they do not belong that you are not alone. Own and embrace your journey and be that light whenever you go.Among the things that keeps me going and motivates me is when I came to know that no matter your circumstances you matter, you are important.
Lastly, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF YOUR VOICE IT IS VERY VALUABLE.
