THIS! Microscopic, virus, that I thought would bring this country together has brought more dissention in our country, more disagreements, more distrust than I ever thought possible.
As America faces yet another historic tragedy, it amazes me how it takes tumultuous times to bring the people together. COVID-19 will not be the last. But I’m confident that we will band together again the next time. This virus has impacted me financially, emotionally, and physically. I will not let it interfere with my Read More

REFLECTION #2: Personal growth isn’t inevitable like how you would think of development. It’s not innate or something that comes with a manual. It’s something that takes hard work, consistency, and unfortunately, time. The last part is what’s the most difficult. Knowing that you want progress, but you’re not ready for the growth yet.
