One year ago today I arrived in Madison, Wisconsin. No money saved up. No job lined up. No one to turn to for help. Plan A was to survive.
I missed my small circle in Rochester, but I knew that I didn't want to go through the motions that most people my age seem to go through. Since moving here, I've strengthened myself professionally, bought two cars, and learned how to push through life's obstacles. But most importantly, I proved to myself that I could do anything with a strong mindset.
It's been a hell of a year. And I'm ready for the most challenging years of my life yet.
"The world wont always love you for who you are. There are too many bodies here. Too many perceptions of what is and isnt beautiful. So here we are, with most of us uncomfortable in our own skin, wishing to be someone different. Thinking happiness only happens if you fit in. What to do when the world wants you to be prettier, skinner, curvier, or have lighter or darker skin. You declare your own universe, the king or the queen, the ones who makes the rules and ignores everyone who cannot see just how brilliant you are, made from atoms brighter than stars." Hope everyone have a fantastic Sunday!
