Undeniable Hope

Hope is what keeps your head above the water when you feel as though your entire world is crashing down. In the face of adversity, it is hard to stay positive but you should at least give it a try. What do you have to lose? I can say that I have been through situations where the light at the end of the tunnel was abysmal. You can just avoid that all together and realize that you have it in you to really achieve your aspirations. For example, if children are able to leave a footprint in this world then why do adults make life so complicated?

Let’s take a look at the following protégés:

Mattie J. Stepanek – despite losing his battle at a very young age to he still wrote beautiful poetry in hopes of bringing simplicity and love back to this world. He lived a short life, however, even though he suffered from Dysautonomic Mitochondrial Myopathy he did not allow his medical diagnosis to get in the way of the message he wanted to spread across the world. He wanted to bring to our attention the importance of peace and global tolerance, which I believe is necessary for all of us to live a fulfilled life.

Khadijah Williams – the girl who broke all boundaries and is now going to attend the most prestigious institution, Harvard University. Who said that there are limits in life? We all can achieve our dreams if we just focus and work hard, despite the adversities we may face. I believe that her story should be inspiration to all of us when are faced with such dilemmas. Williams was first featured in the L.A. Times and has since then pursuing strong efforts in education policy. She aspires to make great changes and I see her making a difference already!

You can find her featured in Vanity Fair.
