Life is a puzzle and we live each day trying to put the pieces together

Buoyant about what awaits ahead

I courageously take the wheel

And drive into the red sunset

To fill my tank with springs of wisdom

 

I peer through my rearview mirror

And see the fragile imagery of me

Crumbling down into the heat of summer

Wiping sweat from my somber brows

 

Today I put my foot on the pedal

And accelerate to new heights

Leaving all of my yesterday

Submerged in the rearview mirror

 

I joyously sigh for relief

Suddenly sparks the realization of a utopian destiny

Where pain and hatred is foreign

But love prevails and shines like the red sunset

Drive: drive on to your destination

Oh, look ahead of you

You got a green light

The signal for your clear path

Go on and cruise through traffic

 

Along the way, you will be tested

Just drive on and roll your windows down

Pay less attention to the cacophony around you

Just drive

Your destination awaits

 

With your cruise control on

Drive without fear

Because you are in control and

Your destination awaits

With your eyes on the road

Drive because you are capable

 

Put your foot on the pedal and

Shut off all the buzzing traffic around you

You are in control

Be the champion and drive on

 

Drive, drive, drive on

Don’t pay attention to anyone trying

To cut you off along the way

Focus on getting to your destination

Drive with all that eager in you

Drive:

 

Drive with tenacity and

Pay no attention to road rage

Just drive and don’t be derailed

By the insatiable driver

Just drive and drive on

Until you get to your destination

Drive!

 


How do i define my life?

I can definitely say with conviction that every step I have taken has led me to where I am today.

People say life is full of “ups-and-downs,” well, I certainly agree. It is evident that when I look at my life and where I have come from, it is easy to just give up and dwell in my sorrows, but thats not the course I’m taking or leaving for my legacy.

Having this kind of outlook on life, has helped me look at failure and rejection with a different perspective, that is, a perspective of leverage. I have come to understand failure as a prerequisite of success. With that said, every person has got an obligation to either fight back with a bang by staying on your feet and taking a step of confidence or give up and lick your wounds.

In my life, I have fallen many times, I learned to pick myself up and faced life in all its ugly ways. I must confess, I’m still falling, but this is not going to stop me march towards my dreams, because no matter what kind of hurdles are in my way, I know I will eventually get there.

It takes perseverance, drive, focus, courage,persuasion, and hard work to get to where you want to be. And yes! it is not easy, it takes a strong minded person to overcome the hurdles of convenience and laziness.

For instance, my life, took me from Zambia, where most women are defined by marriage. I knew I was destined to do something different, but I had no idea and did not know where my life’s journey will end up to. Without giving up, my little steps of confidence landed me in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Without forgetting my core values, which are: perseverance, drive, focus, courage, belief and empathy, I testify that I’m beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Today I’m a college graduate from the University of Washington, with a bachelor’s degree in communications and social sciences. As I walked on 06/15/2013, I knew I was taking a step of confidence into a new chapter of my life, and now the sky is the limit.

I now believe that it is time to join hands with a reputable NGO to help the under privileged. This was the pledge I made, even when I had no idea how I was going to make a difference in the world, since I have the right tools I can do more and I’m so ready.

Finally I pledge to take a step of confidence to be a citizen of the world and join hands with a non governmental organization and make a difference.
