"I would want other people to know that I don’t give up. I am a fighter and my saying while I was here was failure is not an option. If I fail at something I try again until I get it right, until I achieve it, I don’t give up."

    In the career I have chosen now I get to pay my bills on time, I get to enjoy things with my child, with my family, I get to take her places that when I was working at the local grocery store I couldn’t do those things. But now we get to take vacations, I get to enjoy things, enjoy life.
