Hello, my name is Mayra. I am a single mother. I have 2 children. In life, everything requires effort and a lot of dedication. When you have goals to meet, especially during difficult moments like that one we are facing now. With the pandemic, many people have lost their jobs and that makes it harder to provide for all our needs. Our lives have dramatically changed in a certain way. Nothing is the same as before.
I want to share a little bit of my story during these last months since the pandemic. Even in moments of emotional, economic, and physical crisis, it has not been easy for me to reach my goals, but here I am again. I made the decision to continue my PSC classes on Zoom with my tutor Sandy, an excellent person and teacher who has helped me every step I have taken in my life related to my studies. Last year, I achieved one of my biggest goals: I got my GED.
I am still working on some more goals that I have yet to meet. I stay positive even though the situation is difficult. I don’t want to stop until I achieve what I promised to myself. I’m taking another online course. I would like to share this: no matter what the situation is, we are the ones who decide if we surrender or continue fighting for what we want in life. Don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up on any situation that life puts you in. Success for me is not luck, it’s a process, but for those who strive and stay strong even with ups and downs in life, they have their reward. I’m just unstoppable.
