Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.
I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.
So the big question popped up in my head, why me?
I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.
I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.
So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.
