I’m honoured to welcome you to my website! I hope you enjoy your time reading through my blogs and the experiences I’ve went through 🙂

PIcs w/ the amazing children who go to school there!

El Trapiche, Nicaragua: At the Free the Children school we helped build

“…maybe it is not ‘I think, therefore I am’ at the base of our experience of identity. Maybe instead it is, ‘I see YOU and I cannot help but feel the deep, inherent connection to you’. Maybe THAT is where our identities are constituted. Perhaps that connectedness and responsibility for the other is the base of everything, rather than the posited glorious bubble of individuated Me-ness out of which the humanist mythology has been built”- Dr. Davis

I know everyone’s life isn’t easy, I know it for a fact. I started this website back in 2012 with the goal to empower you on your own journey.

In 2011, I was bullied both at school and online to the point that I began to question my self worth and give up on the big dreams I had. Knowing the feelings of loneliness and worthlessness, I was empowered to start this website when a friend of mine opened up about her own story of depression, bullying, and attempting suicide. From being each others’ sources of inspiration, I found the courage within me to share my story in hopes of brightening other people’s lives so that they love and believe in themselves to take care of themselves as well as others.

From reading countless personal accounts through literature or media, and connecting with people from their stories, I am sure that everyone has had a struggle, is struggling, or will struggle at some point in their life. I’ve had struggles in my life: seven near death experiences (not extremely horrific, more like frightening) and spontaneous lung collapses. Despite these obstacles, I am extremely fortunate and beyond grateful of the blessed life I have.

This is why I write ajourney2success, to connect with individuals like you, reinforce your untapped potential, and perhaps provide inspiration or guidance in your difficulties. But most importantly to thread our stories, our lives together with the unification of love, purpose, and hope for a better world.

-A Note on Love and Courage-

Love is what brought me here, nurtured me, and allowed me to thrive. From the compassion of my family and friends for support, to selfless strangers, and the impact of generations before, I live with so many blessings. Education, health care, human rights, and freedom inspire me every single day to give all I have and more because being privileged further reiterates that it isn’t a choice but an obligation to help others in need. Love itself is what empowers me and heals when times are tough. The least I can do is to pour all my heart and soul into my daily life either through service or simple actions to leave the legacy of love. I want to be remembered by the small things that when added up over time are impactful. The small gestures of supporting someone, of teaching something, of giving hope can make a big difference.

Courage combines resilience and justice. I want to be known for standing up for what I believe is right. There will be times when society will impose injustice or inequality, but it will be up to me to hold strong to who I am and my values. Courage is that strength within to be able to remain true to who I am even when society tells me otherwise.
