NEVER BE SOMEBODY BUT BE SOMEONE

Emma Aloka
Posted November 8, 2020 from Kenya

The only thing that makes us struggle is to see ourselves where we belong and not where anyone thinks we can fit.  Take your own race because you are the only referee in that match.  Don't let anything, anyone or anywhere you are,  dictate that. You are yourself the moment you choose to stand strongly for your beliefs despite anyone opinion. Gear on for the struggle is not easy and only the stronger shall win the race. Resist from being somebody you don't know but be someone you can stand for and still be yourself.

Dear Emma,
These are powerful and important words. I hope that many women and girls get to hear these words from you. This is empowerment, to believe in ourselves. I love your message all the way through, and the ending is profound advice for us all to remember.

Hello Emma,
I like the wisdom that trying to be somebody you don't know will be a frustrating journey leading to a dead end. Thanks for sharing.
