What makes me powerful is that I overcame my insecurities. I used to fear what came my way instead of letting it and accepting it. I questioned who I was, or who I should be, or what should I be like all the time. I would allow negative thoughts to come my way where I wouldn’t want to believe anything positive. Throughout high school is when i was able to discover who I am and and accept anything that came my way. I realize having optimism and believing in myself helped me grow up. Now I’m not shy and fearful. Instead I am willing and want to excel, to new things and try to be a better me everyday.
