The past dictates the future; this is something I first realized at a very early age. For instance, I soon learned that hitting my brother would result in me getting in trouble. This idea of the past impacting the future was further reinf
I met him for the first time when I was just a kid. However, I was too little to understand his love for me. Although I acknowledged his presence and realized what he has done for me, it wasn’t until I personally experienced his love for his children

Trying to figure out a personal answer to this at a relatively inexperienced age seemed difficult. Regardless of all the possible explanations I began to think of, though most were valid, none were all-encompassing in terms of defining my most basic
Learn from all that life has to offer, but do not wait to be offered anything. There are opportunities in life that are not just handed to you in a silver plate. Some people are born with everything, but some of us are born with nothing and have to w
All I have done up to this time of my life is to survive in this advanced and competitive world, and I intend to be the stepping stone or ladder so that my younger brother and possibly my descendants can use for their social mobility. I have spent e
