A struggle from within: a college student who has spent her years attempting to recover from trauma. The constant relocation in addition to health and financial issues is only the cherry on top of the daily stresses experienced by most. The color of her hair does not reflect her attitude or intelligence. Her clothing style does not define or control the way she lives. Her size definitely does not change how much she can handle. Learning to balance the inner turmoil with day to day life is not easy. She may not know what is best, but she does her best. In order to get where she wants to be, she has to. She is motivated by the person she wants to become, using her future self as a model for how to act, think, and speak now. She is busy chasing her dream, struggling along the way. She is doing the best she can with what she has. It may not be much, but it's enough for her.
