I’m feeling more motivated lately, by inspiring success stories from graduates and board passers especially the ones who come from humble beginnings. I can relate entirely with Cinderella like stories. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon either. Everything required hard work and seeing my grandmother who worked from day to night to support me was one of the hurdles I had to face. After my beloved grandfather died who was very close to me, other relative/s moved in & turned out to be a little hostile. Quite a resemblance which even my daughter remarked, “now I know why you like Cinderella mommy.” Life back then was bleak and most people doubted and looked down on me.
I was focused while doing what I love – joining art/acting classes for free (as a scholar) then dancing in our Pas des tous & Cheerleading school clubs. Then, I was told that I will never make it, “you will never go to the ball” – something like that, the more I fixed my eyes on achieving my dreams. Like fairytales there will always be villains and they are destined to put us down. But they also serve as our motivation. Yes villains are mean and rude but i thought who are they to stop me.
I may be hurt, but I’m determined, as they say the best revenge is massive success. while my best weapon is praying. I’m sharing a snippet of my story, we all have our struggles in life, mine wasn’t that exceptional. We are defined by how we get up each time we fall. And always believing that there’s a pot of gold in the end of the rainbow. I hope this may brought inspiration to some.
Trust and Believe.
