When I Was 17…

I could make this a long blog post by including the marvelous things I’ve done in the past 365 days, but I won’t. Yesterday evening I finally graduated from high school. This is one of the moments I cherish in life because high school is that stage that prepares you for the better as well as the future.

I can’t believe 4 years went by so quick. Matter fact, I can’t believe that today I’m that 17 year old you kept hearing about; meaning, I am now 18 years old :D – yipppiiieee! It’s just so great to see my dreams come true at such a young age. Also, to see a huge amount of individuals support me is a blessing. I would love to give a big thank you to those who believed in me from the jump, to those who genuinely cared, to those who stuck around throughout the years and to those that joined me in my journey whether it was midway through or near the end. Shouts to my family, my friends, my peers, my team and my supporters. I love and appreciate you all. Last but not least, thank you to J. Cole, Malice, Pusha T, Karen Civil, Hit-Boy, Chase N. Cashe, Soulja Boy (as well as to everybody else) for taking the time out to wish me a happy birthday. Muah! xo
