Being the sparkle that will ignite the fire of possibilities in anyone willing to reach their unique personal excellence is how I define myself. 

My very presence in this world is a miracle. Who knows how much my dad persuaded my mom to abort when he found out she was pregnant. He was so adamant he didn’t want me; he left the house shortly after I was born to never return. From then, it was an endless struggle. Eating, schooling, healthcare were all a luxury. My mom’s devotion and resilience inspired me to devote my life to learning and growth and inspire others to do the same. Those experiences may have been a lemon, but I can use them to make sweet lemonade. That’s what I have committed myself to.
