When I was a senior in high school, I was given a very special gift by my English teacher - a book of poetry one of his college writing mentors had given to him. He was instrumental in developing my writing technique and this gift was his way of saying that the help he had given me was not mine to keep, but mine to share, and when I someday realize my dream of teaching college English, I will give to book to one of my students. This is how we grow.

And now, as I go through the process of applying to graduate school, it's nice to remember the people who have believed and invested in me. I carry them with me, in things and memories, and they give me the ability to believe in myself when I the odds seem unbeatable. They lift me up on their shoulders and the stars are within reach.

So, go. Follow your dreams.

peace&love,
