What is meant to be…

“…will be”. I used to believe so whole-heartedly in these words. That what was meant for you, would always find its way to you. That things would always work out, that everything would go as planned, and all of your dreams would never be lost. Now, I’m not sure these words would ever cross my […]

2020

I think many of us will be happy to put 2020 behind us and the celebration of a new year will have an entirely new meaning this year. 2020… where do I even begin with this one… The entire world has been going through COVID for most of the past year and individually, we have […]

If you can’t be a sun, be a star

A large majority of you that read my blogs are between the ages of 15-21 and with school right around the corner, I thought this blog was fitting. Six months before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he spoke to a group of kids at a high school in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967. […]

Desperation

It was on this cold Sunday morning that I was deep in thought about my life and my purpose. I thought about everything that got me to this exact spot. Let me start from the beginning… When I was applying to universities, I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with the rest of […]
