Something special happened to me, and each time I think about it, I feel as though I am still dreaming. I had been praying and waiting for an email that I hope would make a difference in my life. That email finally came, informing me of my admission into the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. I felt an indescribable joy that made me cry.
There are those who believe that their accomplishments are by their own doing, but I am not one of them. God did this! And I have no words to accurately convey my gratitude. I am thankful to everyone that has helped write this story, especially my family and mentors who continue to believe in—and support—my dreams. Your labor of love is not in vain, and by God’s grace, I’m going to make you all so proud.
Also, it’s my birthday today, so I get to send a special request to the heavens. I pray that your dreams and aspirations come true, and when they do, I pray that you are kind enough to share your story with the world.
