” I hope the lesson that they take from me is that you have to take advantage of any and all opportunities that may be presented to you. When I was younger I didn’t fully understand everything that my parents were sacrificing to do in terms of what their bigger vision was. I had to make a decision as to whether I was going to embrace their dreams, and build upon it or just feel comfortable and live my life, and not be aggressive in doing anything else. It’s important to know that whether you have limited opportunities or an abundance of opportunities, there’s always going to be an abundance of open doors, and it’s up to you whether you slam it shut, or burst it wide open.”
The Choice is always ours to make when the time is right, things may not always go as planned but never stop aiming, never stop dreaming.
