In life I want to make the people proud who invested in me when most people thought my life was over. My journey to this point has not been easy. A lot of people gave up on me in life, but I never stopped believing in myself nor the ideals of hard work and determination.
I went from being a high school dropout to being on the Dean's List with straight A's in college. I went from losing a brother to gaining three brothers. I went from being a chubby, picked on kid to seeing my dream of modeling come true. One constant has been my mom who is a strong and hardworking woman who loves and supports me.
My dad is an incredible man, whom I love and respect. To give you an idea of the type of man he is...
He went on a walk a few weeks ago and found a smooth rock that he says he noticed as he was thinking of me. He took the rock home and wrote on it, "I WILL". He told me to use it as an inspiration rock. Now I begin each week chanting phrases after it...
I WILL...finish college.
I WILL...accept and utilize the gifts God has lent me.
I WILL...be the best example of me for those who choose to love me.
I WILL...fulfill my dream of modeling.
I WILL...continue on my journey towards manhood.
I WILL...be SOMEBODY!
Stop by my page and leave a little positivity from time to time.
