I work hard to succeed.

I work hard to succeed and live my dreams.

I work hard to succeed and live my dreams and do better than my ancestors and excel beyond my needs.

To overcome all of my pain and struggles because ya see, I was raised without a mother.

I work hard to succeed and live my dreams to show all who despise me that this is me.

I come from nothing but I will be something.

I am someone. Someone to know. Someone to remember.

I am basketball on a Friday night. I am Barbie with a little bit of Ken on the side.

I am a ward of the state, a student, a learner, a sister, a daughter, a lover, a motivator.

I am a Black woman with big hopes and dreams.

I am not the stereotypes they place on me: a teenage mother, a drop out, GED, ghetto looking girl, no

home, no daddy, an angry looking girl.

When I see myself, I see a healer, an educator, a successful looking girl, Master's Degree, Ph.D.,

graduate of an University looking girl.

This is me.

I work hard to succeed and I'm living my dreams.
