“A huge step for me was to run with love and not fear. I wasn’t genuinely honest with my parents and others around me with I was running in fear, but to see the change to run with love towards others makes me not so scared to love others who I know love me unconditionally. I am excited and nervous for all that I have in my life in the future awaiting me. I am going to take it step by step and look to God whenever I feel myself slipping into fear.

I am no longer afraid of succeeding; it feels great being able to succeed in your fears and your struggles. At home if I had even a hint of myself succeeding, I would slip into self-sabotage. But now that I have worked through it, I am afraid of the opposite – failing.

I am excited for myself and the progress that I will make at home with my friends and family.”
