From Myers Elementary of a kindergartener on September 9, 2019.

Life is weird. Especially when unexpected things and friends just pop into existence, usually without knowing how or when it occurred. Sure, it has always been difficult to handle, but with time and acceptance anything is possible.

I am grateful to be put in the position I currently am. While I may not be following my intended goal of becoming a baker, it feels amazing to finally find something that I have a passion to pursue.

Continuing to make my parents proud, I will push myself to the limits and show people that I am not to be taken for granted. Even going far as to developing myself into a new and better person.

Working for the multiple different outlets really helped me gain enough confidence to work with people. While there is no doubt in my mind that I will ever stop, there is, of course, hurdles to pass before I can officially say that I have made it.

Going forward, I hope to continue to learn. Even stepping out of my comfort zone to receive assistance and help from those willing to teach and guide me through this career of mine. All-the-while, exploring new places and meeting new people on the way.

So, if those of you who is reading this, thank you. Especially for those who stuck with me even through a rocky year. Though, the stress and anxiety I felt helped me express and develop what I currently know.

If you would like to support my efforts on remaining an independent journalist and photographer, I would greatly appreciate any kind of support whether if it is sharing or donating. Anything helps.
