"I have faced many problems in life. If I sat here and wrote about everything I went through, and what I had to do to get through them, I would be writing for days. What has helped me solve all of my problems is being strong and thinking smart. Always be better, ask questions, never feel you aren’t or won’t be good enough, and make smarter choices."
