I was counting down the day until I would be traveling to the Dominican Republic but all day I have reflected what and who have contributed to this experience! First I would have to say my mom for always encouraging me to have an abundant attitude and disposition! Everyday she has constantly instead in me they saying LIFE IS IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE YOU EITHER SPEAK LIFE OR DEATH!!! Im so grateful!!! To my dad that always makes lifes obstacles into an encouraging adventure or story and he always have did what he could do to contribute to my success! Although my parents are important this five year old gentleman named Dontae is my true inspiration! Some of you that don't know my history may say why? He is the reason I thrive!!! He made me interested in finding out whats best for him and other children! During my visit in the Dominican Republic I was reminded of that feeling of why children need great modeling because a greater can foster a child ambition and give them a push when they feel their dreams are impossible because of their circumstances!
