Don't Compromise Your Beliefs. I know we've been taught this all our lives, but always keep your faith strong. You are a leader who knows there is joy in doing the right thing. Continue to be the light in the darkness that others may follow.
Never Let Others Steal Your Shine. You are a beautiful, black queen full of all the potential that you allow yourself to have. Don't let anyone take that from you. You deserve the world and you will obtain all you deserve if you continue to let the real you shine through. The true, natural, undimmed version of you is perfect in my eyes and is what will take you far in your personal and professional life.
Always Strive for Unlimited Success. College is a time for you to discover your true passions. Let that fuel your determination to succeed in all that you do. And remember: nothing is too hard for you to handle. You are placed in certain situations throughout your life for a reason and you were made to overcome any and all hindrances.
Have Fun. Even though you're paying thousands of dollars for an education, don't forget to relax and have fun. There's plenty of people to meet and many friends to make. Make the most of your college years by letting loose (not too much) and having fun.
Always Remember: I Love You. No matter what happens, through thick and thin, I always be your big sis. The shoulder to cry on, the ear to listen, and the arms to hug. As you continue to keep your beliefs, shine throughout your life, reach your personal and professional goals and have fun, I will be here for all of it.
