“Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons.”
Life throws curveballs. It’s up to you to determine what you plan to accept and what you plan to hit back. I was born and raised in Humboldt, TN about 30 minutes from Memphis, TN. I grew up in a trailer with my 2 brothers and sister. My parents worked hard to get us off powdered milk and the helping hand and when I was 8 years old we moved into a house. Seeing my parents’ work ethic and learning the true value of a dollar at a young age developed the will and determination I have to achieve my goals and make a difference in the world today.
I’m extremely grateful for my family and the struggles I had during my childhood that inspired me to always follow my heart and listen to my soul. After high school I went to college at Wichita State University on a full Track and Field Scholarship. If I would have let me initial upbringing derail me, I would not be where I am today. So yes, I accepted it. But my parents proved that with hard work and perseverance, I created a better life for myself. You can too!
