Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi, I’m belicia, I’m 18 years old and I love reading, writing, art, watching and critiquing movies as well as photography.
What Inspires You Every day? : What inspires me every day is the people before me. The people that were able to overcome challenges and use it to their advantage. It helps me understand that I’m not alone and that I can continue pushing towards my goals
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “The sun will rise and we will try again”. I found this quote on the internet somewhere and it gives me hope even on my worst days. There’s always tomorrow to become better people and evolve. That’s the best part about the world we live in.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To be able to achieve self actualisation and create opportunities to help my community around me one step at a time. Whether that’s through, education or teaching skills or having motivational speeches with them, I believe that living together as a community is essential for humanity to exist.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve had a lot of ups and downs but now I can say I’m at a state of self awareness. At first it was difficult understanding that our world would be changing indefinitely and that affected my mental health. However I’ve come to the conclusion that nothing in this life is certain and has helped me appreciate life even more, despite the chaos.
What is a message you would like to give others? : I would like people to get out of their comfort zone daily. We as humans have a tendency to stick to what makes us feel safe. But it eventually becomes an illusion. Once we take ourselves out of our comfort zone, then we can truly learn about ourselves and understand the people around us even more.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I would like them to know that I am a force to reckon with. That’s something I realized over time despite the struggles I went through and the hardships I faced. I believe that I have the strength to get to my desired goal and so do you.
