    In Malcolm X's quote, he states "A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything". This quote is one of the major reasons why I wake up and want make my dreams come to a reality. Malcolm X's quote is why I try my best in life to live by morals and principles. For example, when I wake up in the morning I pray to God and thank him fo giving me another day to follow my dreams.

    As a child, growing up without a father was hard. Hearing most of my friends talked about their experience with their fathers made me wonder where my father was. They would describe how they went to the movies, playing at the park, and/or hung out with their dad for the weekend. It was very difficult for me as a child, looking for someone to call my father or someone that was like a father figure. I was constantly having difficult conversations with my mother about why my father isn’t in my life like my friends. I would cry myself to sleep some nights, wondering if he loved me. I vaguely remember when I was in English class in third grade, and the teacher asked “Did everyone read the reading?”, we all said “Yes”. She then entered her lesson and asked the boys “Do you see your fathers on a daily basis?” I was one of the only children in the class that said “No”. I then put my head down and cried the rest of the period. There were many days in my life that were just like this.. As I got older, my mother and I would have many deep conversations about how God has blessed me. While having these spiritual conversations,my mom would say “God may have taken your father away but He has given you many fatherly figures in my life including, your mentors, your uncles, and your older cousins”. I then learned that this isn’t the end of the road, I have no reason to make this an excuse to not strive for excellence. Once I learned that this is only a hill I have to climb, I told myself that “I must do the best I can do on whatever I put my mind to”. Currently, I apply this lesson to everything I do, in every aspect of my life, I apply this to sports, to school, when I produce my music, or to be the person my family raised me to be. This lesson has made me want to be better than I was yesterday. If my mother never shed light on this to me at such a young age, I firmly believe that I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today. For the future, I hope to be successful on my college ventures/journey because I will always remember those precious conversations my mother and I had in the car on my way to school. In addition, I will always remember how my uncle, who passed away a few years ago, though he dropped out of high school, still earned his G.E.D. This will always be in the back of my mind. This will help me out of school because I want to be an entrepreneur and will be determined to earn what I want.
