There Is No Stopping You

THERE IS NO STOPPING YOU unless you stop working.

There Is No Stopping You

As I was writing an Instagram caption, I felt like I was writing a book. Then, I thought about my Daenne's Journal Fam and I started to write this article.

Last year, I received a scholarship from Florida International University, and they asked each recipient to write a thank you letter to the donors. Later, they asked us if we would be comfortable reading the letter to our donors at our award Ceremony. I said yes "of course". When the time came, I read my letter. After I read it, I could feel the warmth, and the love of the people in the room by the applause and the tears. It was an overwhelming feeling. Afterwards, I got to speak to my donors, and they all encouraged me and told me how they believe in me.

A few months later, I received a call from FIU. They told me how I impacted the people in the room and how the donors were moved by my speech and I was chosen to be interviewed and featured in the next FIU Magazine. I could not believe it; I asked God "who am I for you to do all this for me". They also scheduled a professional photo shoot. After I told them my story, they said we would want to put everything because you've accomplished so much, but we will emphasize on the key ones. I did not mind it at all because just being featured was an honor for me.

I have to tell you that being featured in the FIU magazine Fall 2018 edition was the last thing I would have thought about. I share all this with you to remind that it doesn't matter where you come from, when it comes time for God to make ways with you, He will blow your mind. I am just a girl who moved to the U.S 6 years ago. Often times we listen the negative things people have to say about our goals, and we believe them. DO NOT LET ANYONE limit you, better yet DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF. In my article There Is No Straight Road To Life, I shared about all my insecurities and how I wanted to have a straight road in everything I do. But, had I have a straight road, I would have a different story to tell, and I doubt you would relate to me as much.

Keep your eyes open because there are a lot of people that do not want to see you succeed. But, there are few people out there who have their eyes open and are ready to uplift you. You have to put your all to whatever you are working on so those eyes can see you. Yes, you might have to sacrifice certain things in order to put your all towards your future, but it will all be worth it in the end.

Remember, THERE IS NO STOPPING YOU unless YOU stop working.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
