I am proud to be the older sister of this strong, smart-mouthed, ambitious, determined young woman. Words cannot explain how much of a blessing she is to me. My mother has raised us all to be independent and goal oriented but this girl right here is amazing. Yes I am older but she has shown me so much and doesn’t even realize it. She is my inspiration and part of the reason why I go above and beyond when it comes to school and life. We are the definition of strength. This is what a survivor looks like. Our past does not define or inhibit us. It makes us stronger and teaches us lessons as we grow, and fall and get back up.
