How did you get to be where you are today?

I think this was always my path in life. Born in the darkness, I had always chased the light, and in my chase, I picked up skills and amazing people during my journey. I live this life because I was meant to and I would not change one thing because every second, since the day I was born, brought me to my right now and I’m living a life I could not be prouder of.

I have not.

I listen. And when the time is right, I guide them. I have lived along life in 44 short years, so I want to help others be happy and healthy in their life and their choices.

In a way, because I have no choice. While going through my darkest times, I knew if I got out of them, I would help others to never feel alone.
