  • You can have a beautiful life and want more. You can keep on living and still have goals;

  • “Maybe I need to take a chance on myself, and push myself and reawaken a side of me that I have just ignored”
  • "If I can take something that has been very hard on me and turn it into a world of impact, it puts meaning behind my story and specifically Rub and gives her a beautiful meaning for me. That meaning allowed me to keep going instead of being a victim to it"
