I’m very excited for a summer in Detroit after about 6 years. I’ve spent the last few summers in my comfortable college town as well as a summer abroad in Italy. I’m now old enough to truly appreciate the beautiful summer Detroit offers with no excuses. This is also the first time fully being independent and working throughout the summer which I’m sure will be an adjustment.

In terms of reflecting after these last nine months, life is unpredictable. It’s up to you whether that is a scary or exciting thing. Life isn’t meant to be rushed, waiting for the next moment or full of worry. I strive to to take on life fearlessly with hope and faith and inspiring others to do the same.  I can’t control what life hands me but I can control how I deal with it. I could either be anxious, insecure, and over think things until my brain explodes, or I can be still and know that my future is in hands much greater than mine. I choose to be still, and conquer things with love, positivity and patience.
