You are one of a kind and have something great to offer.

Scroll IV of "The Greatest Salesman" starts out by saying "Never has there been another with my mind, my heart, mt eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move exactly like me."

In the last year i have had a lot of criticism over how I chose to move through school. I finished High school in November of 2016 after having Homeschooled for almost 12 full years, and started my Post Secondary Education through the Institute of integrative Nutrition.

 I graduated 4 years before my friends from High school and have chosen the path of being a freelance writer and blogger focused on Travel, Safer beauty, and Women's Health.

I am going on a 7 month European tour which is something my friends dream of, but have never followed through on. I am moving not just out of my parents home, not just into another state, but into a completely different country. 

Not only do I have looks and a personality that can never be copied I am constantly pushing myself mentally to become a better person and live the life that I want without the cement of society weighing me down.

"Vain attempts to imitate others no longer do I make."

When I was younger I did everything that I could to please others and blend into the crowd. I was homeschooled in a sea of public schoolers, I was tired of being picked on and teased for being different. 

Down the road I eventually grew very tired of the lies that I was living and decided to "place my uniqueness on display." I proclaimed who I was loudly and it butted heads with others who didn't like that I was being different than everyone else.

But if you're going to live on earth for a long period of time... why conform to others when you can live for you in the light of the lord?

" I am  a unique creature of nature. I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore I am valuable."
