For over 3 years, I stayed with an emotionally, physically, and sexually abusive man who was very controlling. I had big dreams involving travel and going back to school, but when it seemed that those things would never come true, I began to drink. Through the inspiration of a friend and a swift kick in the pants, I got out of that bad situation. Since then, I have traveled thousands of miles and visited many places that I have never seen before, including Egypt. After I graduate with my 2 Bachelor's Degrees, I will be going on to get 2 Master's Degrees. I have many more big dreams that I plan to accomplish and I will accomplish them. I have overcome hardship and I will become everything that I've ever dreamed of.
