"The person I look up to the most is my dad. He’s my number one man in everything that I do. Although he’s not my biological father, he treats me just like his own, and that really means a lot to me. He’s always encouraged me to be myself, to know my worth, and not to blend in with the crowd. He’s my biggest supporter. I’m a college senior now, majoring in Political Science, with plans to attend law school when I graduate. My aunt, uncle, and cousin are all attorneys, so that plays a big role in my life too. I would say to other young girls who are wondering about their future: The road is never easy, but if you believe in yourself, plan ahead, and take the initiative to do what you need to do, you can make your dreams your reality. Keep God first, whether or not anyone else is supporting you. There’s no excuse to give up on yourself."
