Introvert

Part 1

Flower Bouquet

Growing up as an introverted child was challenging. I often felt like the odds were stacked against me because I didn't "fit in" with the majority. As I grew older and discovered more about myself, I learned to accept and embrace my introverted nature. It's difficult when others constantly point out your differences. However, those differences have made me who I am today. I hope that by sharing my story, I can inspire someone who may be struggling. Remember it's ok to be your authentic self. Do your best to show yourself and others compassion. We all need it as we navigate this journey of life.

Challenges

Part 2

New Flowers

Despite appearances, I too have faced hardships and failures. The past few decades have been a valley of highs and lows. Involving failed relationships, academic difficulties, health complications, and a time of feeling lost and overwhelmed. However, this wasn't the end of my story. I was determined to overcome the struggles and to try again until my dreams became a reality. I am grateful to God for the direction he provided and the many teachers who have crossed my path to help me find my way. Through my own experiences, I have developed a desire to be a light, an inspiration, and a helping hand to those in need. 

Present

Part 3

Colorful Hydrangeas

Currently, I'm in a place of embracing the purpose that God has designed for me. Birthing Acts of Compassion Outreach marks the beginning of a new chapter in my journey.
