“Be nice to other people so that I can feel good about myself.”
These are the words of a 16 year old young lady that I met today. This young lady has been separated from her mother since she was little. She is from the Dominican Republic and lives with her Aunt in Ohio, while her mother resides in the Dominican Republic. She shared that she has been thinking about what her major will be in College. She is also thinking about looking into the Navy. I said to this young lady, “You are so positive despite being separated from your mother at a young age”. She replied, “It’s hard living here without my mom so I figured, be nice to other people so that I can feel good about myself.” How Powerful is that! She is only 16 years old with that positive outlook on Life! Mic Drop!
So you know I had to give her 1 of my journals to document her Journey to Success!
