Take a journey with me if you will, back to a time in your life when you dreamed of being something great. Back to a time when you envisioned yourself becoming an astronaut, firefighter, doctor, teacher, or even a musician. I remember having the same kind of dreams as a child and would like to share some of those with you. However, I would like to begin by reading a quote that embodies the essences of my being. It comes from the New Living Translation of the bible; which is found in Galatians 6:9 So don't get tired of doing what is good, don't get discouraged and give, for we will reap a harvest of blessings at the appropriate time. I would like to allude to the fact that perseverance and my faith in GOD has been the key driving forces that have enabled me to obtain some of my lifelong dreams. When I was a young girl, I never missed a homecoming football game. I was always fascinated by the halftime ceremony; which involved the crowning of the homecoming queen. This was the moment I eagerly anticipated every year and would secretly envision myself parading around that football field with that crown on one day. However, I would later discover that many cities, towns, communities, and even countries have a set of road maps or master designs that all lead in one specific direction. Little did I know, that I would travel along my own contrasting road map that was going to lead me down a path of accomplishing some of my childhood dreams. Ironically, I not only fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming homecoming queen; coincidentally, I also became the first African-American homecoming queen ever to be crowned in the little city of Sherman, Texas. Beyond this hue uric event, I would embark on a journey that would lead me to a major personal milestone in my life; which was becoming the first member of my immediate family to attend college. However, this journey would not go as smoothly as I envisioned due to the fact that I would be faced with the obstacle of becoming pregnant with my first daughter, Ladaziye. This challenge really seemed insurmountable at the time and forced me to search for my true source of strength. In May of 1992, my life would take on a new direction. I found myself alone, wondering how I was going to break the news to my boyfriend and my parents whom I was still living with. This was the one thing my mother always warned me of and Did I listen? Unfortunately, not. Immediately I was faced with the biggest dilemma and form of adversity in my life and there was no easy way to avoid confronting it. At the time, I was going to school full-time and working part-time and my boyfriend was in the midst of transferring from Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri to Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma to play basketball. Now, what were we going to do? I immediately told him that having an abortion was out of the question. I decided a couple days later that I would break the news to my mother. I think she already had an idea of what I was about to tell her by the look on her face when I began discussing the matter with her. Surprisingly, she was very calm and supportive. She did not even mention the fact that she had forewarned me of the consequences of involving myself in premarital sex. Needless to say, this support would prove to be a monumental asset because I would soon be faced with the grim reality of becoming a single parent struggling to cling to my dreams. However, through countless hours of soul searching and a re commitment to my faith in GOD I would manage to continue my education and gain my associates degree in sociology a year after giving birth to my child. Besides being persistent and committed to both my dreams and goals, I found that my unyielding faith in GOD would prove to be the source of all my strength and purpose in life. I also found out that my journey had only begun. For instance, three months before I was to be married, my fiance received a job that would take us to Kokomo, Indiana. I was faced with the challenge of being uprooted from a place that I had lived my entire life and was being taken away from my support system. Fortunately, this would prove to be an experience that would enable me to develop an even closer relationship with GOD. And now I know that the scripture stated in Philippians 4:13 is true, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Whether it is in school, work, or making daily decisions in my life I know that this proclamation is true and applies to my life. Furthermore, I am able to embrace the challenges in my life and appreciate the ability of wearing the many hats that are assigned to me in life. Thus I am capable of bearing the responsibility of balancing my obligations of being a wife, mother, and continuing the pursuit of my personal goal of gaining my Bachelor of Science degree as a student. Therefore in conclusion, perseverance which is defined as the act of persevering or being persistent and steadfast has been a key character trait in my life. This trait coupled with the faith that I have in GOD has enabled me to accomplish the key events that have served as milestones in my life. They have also served as a means of describing the essences of my being. As a homecoming queen, I became a pioneer for other African-American girls in my hometown. In my family, I was instrumental in beginning a tradition of higher education. Likewise, as once being a young single parent, I would like to serve as model of faith and perseverance. So in closing, I would like to provide this quote as a parting thought, When I was born I cried and the world rejoiced, may I live such a life---that when I die, I will rejoice and the world cries.
