What was your childhood like?
Growing up I never had it easy. Times were extremely hard, but I never noticed. It was a struggle just for me to receive basic resources like access to running water. As a child, I also suffered a lot of emotional abuse, I was told that I was never going to achieve everything great, which negatively impacted my self-esteem and confidence as a young adult. However, I despite it all, I grew up happy and knowing that better days were ahead, and I could achieve whatever I put my mind and heart to.
