As the year comes to an end, I can’t help but think about all that has happened. To say the least, it was not what I expected. I have seen myself grow more in this year, and as I do, my relationships and world seem to continue to grow.
Before, I used to be a very quiet person who tried to avoid any attention on myself… but when you wake up and realize that your injuries, your story, and your face have been all over the news world-wide, that all changes.
On June 30, 2018, I walked onto a boat. I walked onto the wrong boat and chose the wrong seat. I had no idea this simple action would lead to the worst year of my life and a completely new future for myself.
