Someone once told me that the future is going to happen, whether I’m ready or not. The very concept of embracing the future was something unfathomable to me, because I was under the impression that I had nothing to look forward to.
Every new beginning comes from some other end. The boy, who was too blinded by self-doubt and criticism to see that, has become a young man on the verge of reaching his potential.
Loving parents and members of family who care for me in so many ways have established a foundation that has never allowed me to lose focus.
After graduating from Emmanuel Baptist High School in 2001, I enrolled at Bowling Green State University in Ohio for the 2001 summer semester without the slightest inkling of what I wanted to study.
Only a week into the semester I applied for a job at the BG News, the student newspaper. Looking at the comments I received in regard to my first article does not compare to how much I have grown as a journalist since then.
The first change came within my heart as I have developed more of a passion for writing, and my work has become a representation of how far I have come.
Now, as a sophomore at BGSU who is focusing on print journalism with a minor in sports management, I believe that my future is filled with promise.
For so long I struggled with finding something I could nurture and claim as my own. Gifts are never recognized but revealed through difficult circumstances. I have become the beneficiary of trials, tribulations, and God’s blessings, which have provided me with the gift to write and an undying will to succeed.
It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.
