“No matter who you are or what you’ve been through, realize in this life there is nothing that you cannot do. You simply have to work hard and believe, believe me you can say it, you will do it. There is so much you will achieve. You just have to acknowledge the struggles of the past that led you to this path and realize, it’s not where you’re from it’s where you’re at, Imagine this Imagine That”
