I want to be remembered as a person who was honest about all of the things that are hard, to be honest about. One day I just knew I had been given a gift and that gift was life. On hard days I have to encourage myself to keep pushing myself and not look back but in surveying my present I always tell myself “Ayesha don’t get discouraged sometimes you have to encourage yourself.” You have to keep on taking your days as they come. You never think about appreciating your life until you are older but once you can say “I’m okay. I want my life.” I don’t want to die or end my life. I will be taking more steps to independence. I am going to get a vehicle and try to get my driver’s license. This is possible and I know I can do this. I am confident in my ability to take this step.
