Sometimes you need to pause and reavaluate. You need to look in the mirror and see who you are. I did that this past week. I realized my worth.
This was forced on me when I was excluded from something that I so wanted. It turns out all I wanted was acceptance for who I am. I was forced to look myself in the mirror and I realized that it was their loss.
I may only be seventeen but I am a fierce force. I am strong. I am smart. I am a good person. I am a leader among my peers and community.
I am proud of my heritage. I am proud of who I am. I am proud to be me.
Never forget never forget your roots, they will hold you up when someone tries to knock you down.
