I have to keep reminding myself that I didn’t have the support that I needed to reach what I define success to be. I was stuck for quite some time and had extreme challenges that affected my mental health and my ability to move forward. I am living this life without guidance and the goals that I have for myself are not the type that my family members have had for themselves and that is okay. That just means that I must prepare myself to do research and be okay with making mistakes. I am a first generation in a lot of things and that is okay. I have to learn how to work smarter and I have to remember not to compare myself to others especially on social media. I am in my own lane.
