Destiny Awaits..

Most times l like to think l am on way somewhere phenomenal.Born the ninth child in a family of ten l am ill placed between two generations of women.The older generation that feels a woman's main purpose in life is to pro create and the generation l belong to that shouts "career first".It was a long difficult journey trying to balance the two.When l look back it feels as if l swam in the ocean and actually surfed on huge ferocious waves.Sometimes it was scary too,when people told me that would never pass juniour high school let alone law school. I remember one of my teachers telling me that my head was so small going to University was going to make it explode.Other said l needed a miracle to pass.All this not only made me more determined but it fueled my passion and made an impossible dream possible.

Thank you!

Thank you for sharing! Your story is so inspiring. In spite of discouraging words from others, you kept faith in yourself and succeeded. Even with constant encouragement in my life (that I am so blessed to have), I sometimes find it hard to have faith in myself. Your determination is commendable and I am learning from you, dear sister.

Warmly,

Emily
