When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
First I would cry, and allow myself that sadness or feeling of failure, but I would not give up. I would try to remain positive and push forward. It's happened to me many times. The setbacks and disappointments seem so big now but trust me, you can overcome. You simply resolve to move forward despite the bad situation or ill feelings. If you still have life in you, you can make it through!
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
As cliché as this may sound, my Mom. She is a hardworking Mexican woman. She came to this country to find success for her children and she has done just that. With all her hard work and sacrifices as her daughter, I have tried to always do more than she thought I could do and accomplish all that she wants me to accomplish. Because of her I am who I am. Because of her, I strive for MORE.
