What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? Hearing loss can be a challenging obstacle to overcome. As someone who has experienced it firsthand, I understand the difficulties it presents. In school, I had to come up with unique ideas to accommodate my hearing loss. It required extra effort, but I refused to let it hold me back. In sports, my hearing loss made things more difficult, but I didn't give up. Instead, I found ways to adapt. It wasn't always easy, but my perseverance paid off. Now, I hope to inspire others facing similar challenges to keep pushing forward. With determination and hard work, anything is possible.
What else would you like to talk about? I would like to speak about the profound impact the women in my life have had on me. My mother is my lighthouse and guides me through the chaos of life. My nanny is my biggest supporter and pushed me to strive for greatness and be the best version of myself. My grandmother has been a constant source of hope and love that I can always turn to. Their unwavering support has helped shape me into the woman that I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? If given the opportunity, I would highlight the importance of self love. Too often, young women are subjected to the belief that society sets the standards for their beauty and that the only way they are able to achieve love is by meeting those standards. Flaws are what define our individual beauty. Young women should instead be taught to embrace their uniqueness and shine beyond what society says they are allowed to accomplish. Women are so powerful and I believe that if we come together to lift each other up then so much more can be accomplished in the name of woman-kind.
