My mom is fiercer than anyone I have ever met! She will always do what’s right, and put others first.
Sometimes I have doubts that I’m not doing “great things” with my life. Those thoughts start to creep in the back of my head like a shadow. Then I remind myself that even the simplest things can be great accomplishments.
You’ve got to have amazing friends by your side. They are the ones who make you strongest.
I love old French films because most of the leads are young, independent women who won’t give up without a fight!
A lot of people depend on my mom for help, so sometimes she forgets to take care of herself. That’s why I try to be her helping hand.
It’s important that we stick together!
It’s important that we never forget who we are and where we came from.
