Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am 22 years old and I am currently a student at the University of North Texas obtaining my Bachelors in Kinesiology. I am originally from Dallas, Tx. but I have lived in cities all over the area including Lancaster, Oak Cliff, Pleasant Grove, Glenn Heights, Desoto, Seagoville and Denton. I first ran away in 2015 but I returned briefly before I officially moved out of my mother’s house when I was 16 years old. Nevertheless, I still cared deeply about school as I graduated 13th in my class and achieved many academic scholarships. I am also very passionate about sports. I participated in Volleyball, Basketball, Cheer, Track, Flag Football, Sand Volleyball, Badminton, Cross Country and Tennis. Now, I am striving to put my knowledge and experiences to use by sharing them with young adults. I know what it feels like when you don’t have anyone to seek advice from so I hope to be a role model full of wisdom for others.
What Inspires You Every day? : Family, love, sports, a lavish lifestyle, escaping poverty, transforming myself into something better.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: -If you can change it, change it but if you can’t change it then adapt to it.
-Just because it’s not on your time, doesn’t mean it’s not ON TIME! Amen.
-Just because it’s not happening how you want it to, doesn’t mean it’s not happening how it’s SUPPOSED TO! Amen.
Often times we like to believe things are going wrong just because they aren’t going how WE want it to go, but that is such a spoiled way of thinking.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To have a loving household where we hold family events every holiday. I want my children to pass on newly formed family traditions and teach their family that love is still alive in this wicked world. I want to touch the hearts of many young adults and show them that their dreams are possible. I want to be a support system and encourage people to try their hardest. I want to show people that nothing is out of reach or too far-fetched. I want to open my own gym and invest in a club volleyball team that travels across the states. I want to buy my mother a house and make sure she is happy and relaxed.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic was very depressing at first. I hated that we were so separated and forced to not have any fun. It was all for the greater good though. I now feel like I have a new sense of self. I have learned to love being alone. I developed a new mindset about the way money works. I understood that the world as we know it right now could change at any moment. The only thing that is guaranteed is Allah and our fates. Karma is extremely real so never underestimate the power of kismet. You can’t force anything that isn’t bound and you can’t stop anything that’s already written.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Enjoy your life now because the next hour isn’t promised. Feel your feelings and stand on them! Don’t let someone tell you how you feel or how you should feel! Trust your intuition. It’s NEVER about thinking with your mind OR your heart… you MUST use BOTH to make wise decisions always!
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: See you at the top! Amen.
