It was a long road getting here…
Enrolled as a Juilliard student in 2014…
It’s been four years…
Now I’m about to graduate from college in May of 2018.
I wouldn’t be here without God and my family, and the guidance they give me on a daily basis.
My grandparents have raised me since I was a year and 3 months old, so they are pretty much my real parents.
My grandpa always keeps it real and doesn’t stress too much. I can always count on him to be the OG and drop some knowledge on me when I need and even when I don’t think I need it!
My grandmother (whom I call “Momma”) has a serious relationship with God, and I can always count on her to pray with and for me. She always has a way of knowing if there is something going on with me, both good and bad. God, I love that woman.
There are so many people in my life who give me guidance all the time: mentors, more family members, friends, etc.
Success doesn’t come alone! If there is someone in your life who offers guidance, it doesn’t hurt to listen.
