As 21 years have gone by, I've come to realize that I am one very lucky girl. Although I may have not been born into a wealthy family who has been able to give me everything and anything I've ever wanted, I was extremely blessed to be born into a family rich with love and who has continuously given me their unconditional love and support. On top of that, the friends I've made are so incredibly caring and kind. We have been to hell and back not once, but several times and I would not be the person I am today without them. I've acknowledged that life has never been and will never be perfect. I've learned that things could be worse but they could be also better. No matter what the case may be, I have no other way of explaining the feeling I have of being the luckiest person alive with the ones who I hold close to my heart by my side.
