When I look in the mirror…
…I see a woman in transition.
I am a young adult. Sometimes I feel like one, but other times I still feel like a child.
…I see a loving family member.
I am a daughter, a sister, a niece, and a granddaughter. My family means everything to me and each person has a huge impact on who I am. They are my support system.
…I see a good, compassionate friend.
I have a large circle of close friends, and they also mean the world to me. They are my partners through life’s challenges, and my second family. They make me laugh constantly, and I strive each day to help them grow and be happy.
…I see a nurturer.
I am a nanny by profession, and I have strong nurturing instincts and love children. My job gives me a sense of purpose and drives me to be a consistent positive influence on the lives of the young people I care for.
…I see a future art therapist.
I have always loved the arts & they have gotten me through some of the toughest times in my life. I hope to use art to help and improve the lives of every patient I come across in my career.
…I see an artist.
I am gifted with creativity and imagination. I love painting, drawing and writing. Art is my passion, and I hope to always cultivate this gift.
…I see independence.
I am single at the moment, and for the first time in a long time, I am completely content with that. I am learning to truly love myself, so that I will be able to love someone else with all my heart when the time comes.
…I see a warrior.
I have been through many challenges in my life, and have overcome them with a resiliency I am proud of. Finding the good in suffering has strengthened me immensely.
…I see me.
I am not who I want to be just yet, but I am on my way, and am content in enjoying my journey as it comes.
