I am taking risks, and it feels cool. I know God is with me in this fight, and it inspires me every day to keep going, and not to stop even if I am afraid. I’ll keep trying to push pass the fear. I’ve been driving for two hours at a time once a week for a few weeks now. I am scheduled to go to the DMV at the end of November to take the road test. I had an older female friend give me advice and she said “Ayesha don’t judge yourself you can do it!” Sometimes if I feel discouraged I encourage myself, and I say to myself “I can make it, I can, I can, and I will”. The relationship I have with my mom is a good one. She and I have had some good times. I am working on getting my probationary license soon, but for the adult road at the NJ DMV you need to practice for at least twelve months that equates to a year before you can get a basic driver license. I will keep getting my driving lessons through November and December of this year 2020 and I will not judge myself. I can do it!
