” In the heart of darkness there is the most light,” those were the wise words my judge told me after my Top 20 Under 20 Interview. It’s been a long time since I’ve written (like a week) because I really was going through a rough time the past week. But I’m back up and really excited since when things are going so bad they usually end up well. The light that shined was that I was able to secure a 500$ grant for my Art2Heart initiative, and we got an offer to paint a mural at our recreation center! After all the support from the community, I just felt loved and that my efforts weren’t going to waste. After the longest time of not knowing if I was doing things right, this week told me yes indeed their is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s so hard to focus on that flicker of light in the darkness. Because when I was in that hole of darkness I couldn’t do it no matter how hard I tried. But let me tell you whatever you’re going through is not permanent. You have the ability to change it. And you may think I don’t know, and you’re right I don’t know because what you’re going through is tough and I might never taste it. But remember you will not bow your head down and let life defeat you. You are capable of anything literally! And I’ve reiterated this so many times, but hard work usually pays off<3
I’ll keep posting hopefully but AP exams are in 2 weeks, so.. I won’t be able to update as often!
