I AM....

I am a daughter, of teen parents who instilled the value of education in me because of their own missed opportunities.

I am a granddaughter, that sees the wisdom and knowledge in my grandparents strands of glistening grey hair.

I am a little sister, who admirers and respects her older brother and makes note of his advice.

I am a big sister, remembering that he is watching me and try to set a good example.

I am a niece who feels the pride and support in my uncle’s smile.

I am a friend, one who will listen and comfort you when you feel no one else will.

I am eager to learn, strong, driven, dedicated and compassionate.

I am who I am because of the people who mean so much to me.

The wishes, lessons, advice, drive, pride and compassion THEY have blessed me with make me who.....I am!
