I attended Georgia State University. During my four years there I became an expert in rebelling the pressures to conform and become one of the “crowd.”
The system frustrated me whenever it told me to do something just like everyone else. It made no sense, especially if that wasn’t a representation of me. I didn’t understand then, like I do now, that it wasn’t because they wanted me to fail but it was because they feared the unknown.
I’m here to tell you – It’s okay to be you, to do what you love, and engage in activities that best represent you.
Love who you are. If you don’t, you have nothing.
