So Saba didn’t turn out so well after-all. For some personal reasons, I decided to withdraw and come back home 😦 I wish everything had turned out differently, but sadly not everything always does. Like one of my favorite quotes:
” Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
Leaving Saba has made me even more determined than ever to become a doctor because it’s the only thing in my life that’s has ever been an obstacle. Just like at the Children’s Hospital, when things get tough, you cant’t just give up! That could be the difference between life and death. If I wanted to, I could’ve easily gone into Music, or Math my other two passions, but that would’ve been too easy. Music and math comes too naturally so I feel like everyday would be too mechanic. Since leaving Saba in August, I’ve moved back home and continued to take Science classes that I know will be a challenge at my next school. Thank you to the lifelong friends I’ve made at Saba, I will never forget the memories we made and lessons you’ve taught me. I wish everyone all the best! Now onto bigger and better things!
