A friend of mine sent me this article from the New York Times for Throw Back Thursday —from five years ago!
This article brings back great memories and reminds me how far we’ve come! Hard work and perseverance have led me to success, but I don’t ever forget the hard times. My struggles have made me who I am today and remind me to not take anything for granted. It is also why I feel strongly that with success comes responsibility to help those in need — I have been there myself.
We all have struggles, but our commitment to continue moving forward in the face of adversity determines where we end up. For Throw Back Thursday, I’d like to share some of my story with you. My hope in sharing this article with you is that you will see that behind most success stories are tales of struggle and hard work. From experience, I can say don’t give up, keep going and you will make it through the hard times!
