I lived in the suburbs trying to be the person that society expected me to be. Then one day I realized, without change, I am destined to be forgotten. To sanctify one’s life is to realize one’s legacy. My objective now is to live life reflectively, thoughtfully and critically. With the wisdom that this exercise will produce, I dream to inspire others to rethink how they can create change: through dialogue, prose, or action. Don’t be afraid.
