My parents. Through life, they have exhibited extreme resilience, grace and determination. Both growing up in less than ideal situations, they never succumbed to their circumstances. After supporting themselves through school and having careers of their own, their compassion for children led them to start their own business, Ascension Foster Care. Growing up, I’ve been able to watch them give back to many and always take care of their people. Watching all of their hard work come to fruition inspires me in pursuit of my own dreams.
Why is lifelong learning important to you?
In the song, “Racks in The Middle” by Roddy Rich, Nipsey Hussle said, “Learn the game, you’re a student at best,” and it just stuck with me. In a way, it’s very humbling to know that I don’t know everything that life has to offer. I can only experience it to learn. I’ve always wanted to know more because I believe the more you know, the more opportunities life has to offer.
