Jakes Juxtaposition – “This blog is dedicated to you”

April 24th, 2019

Sundays are my favorite days. This past weekend made me think of who my pillars are and the importance of my supporters, family, friends, peers and teachers that I don’t think I acknowledge enough.
This blog is dedicated to you.
Some of my days seem downright crazy, running from point A to point B, having my mom chauffeur me around for appointments a few times a week. I don’t even know if there is a “role book” somewhere, but she sure is my role model. My father also, who dedicates the wee hours in the mornings to exercise with me, watch my healthy eating habits and encourage to stay healthy. I wish there were some donuts in the menu sometimes. (that stays for my transition program…ha-ha…no pun intended). My family is my rock, there is no way around it. The passion I have for caring and helping others come from the people who support me in everything I do. My mentors who work with me are encouraging and live up to what they do best: Mentoring. My staff at school don’t ever let me get discouraged, their diverse approaches always work, and get the best laughs and jokes ever. I am achieving my dreams because of all of them. I become a better version of myself every day (for what I remember of). My advice to you is: follow your dreams even if they may be outlandish. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and know that the families that involved in every and any part of your success will lead to greater achievements. I believe that with passion there is purpose….
