Shelby’s story really touched my heart yesterday. She showed me not to let not to let anything ruin my positivity, mindset and attitude. Her speech was very empowering. After hearing her speech I will no longer entertain negativity, drama or anything that may cause me to lose my character. Not everything needs a reaction. Moving forward I will continue to think positive in difficult situations. As a future college student whatever I put my mind to I will pursue it. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest and there may be a calm before the storm but I will not let anything stop me from reaching my goal.
