These words relate to my life because I have had to overcome obstacles in my life. When I was little I had to be very bold and brave because I grew up in the foster care system. The homes I lived in were filled with people that were sexually, physically and emotionally abusive. Enduring these hardships as a young child forced me to be realistic about life. My experiences have made me an emotional and dynamic person. I was too resilient and resistant to let life knock me down. When life gave me lemons I made amazing lemonade.
