My power, strength and motivation comes from my positive mentality. In life I have always been faced with difficult and troubled times which has given me the power to succeed in life. A lot of people may feel that I am not successful yet, but every day I wake up is enough success for me. 

As a child my family made sure to teach me respect and to stay positive no matter what the situation may be. We all are faced with troubled times in life but a lot of people don’t know how to deal with situations. 

When I was younger I was always put in negative situations such as not knowing if we would have a place to live. My mother is where I get my strength and power from because she taught me how to survive during negative situations. Once, when we were evicted, she taught me how to keep my head up and how to turn a negative situation into a positive one.
