College Summit Yale University 2012

2012 was a year in which good & bad times came. But through it all I was able to walk away with a smile and my head held high.I go into 2013 to finish my education,stay healthy and positive,but most importantly leave my mark on the world.I was always a person who would laugh through the bad times and laugh even harder thru the good times.I have grown tremendously in 2013 and I thank those who have been around to contribute to my growth but also to those who laughed and downsized me.Throughout 2012 I took a huge interest in African American society and culture.Also quotes and excerpts from leaders and activist.One quote that I would have to say gave me the ability to keep pushing forward in 2012 is "YOU HAVE TO BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD" by Mahatma Gandhi leading me to not only start I Am Me. but also help my youth to think before they do things and also be a positive figure in my school as my community taking things to the street and working with the S.O.S organization from time to time... I have to say 2012 is the year in which I feel as if I have come to grow and as for the trials and tribulations to come in 2013 bring em on...THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO BELIEVED IN ME & TOLD ME I COULD DO IT. Big Ups Specifically To My Whole Yale Family Because It Was That One Weekend With You.That Changed My Perspective On Life Forever...
