Today is the day that we celebrate the one and only Martin Luther King Jr. Many celebrate him for all he has done and stood for. The most important thing that Martin Luther King Jr. presented during his time was that you must do anything possible to reach your dreams. Never allow the hate, judgements or negativity of others stop you from chasing the thing that you believe in. Dreams are not to only supposed to be spoken of, but to be put into actions.
My Dream is…
… to be the first doctor in my family Busting my a** in school, applying for internships to complete my clinical hours for Med School and studying for the MCAT
… to also be a doctor. Currently I’m in a 7 year Bs/md program so I’m just trying to get through that and trying to find somewhere to do medical research
…to help young women of color see the beauty from the inside to the out. There is no correct way to be beautiful because everyone has their own way. A flaw is not a problem, its a solution to your insecruities . Once you love them, you will love yourself fully. Once you accept them, no one can ever use them against you. It will lead to walk in confidence. My dream is to reach as many girls as I can. I know I won’t be able to reach them all, but as long as I reach some my dream will come true. I will never stop working towards it…
…to be someone who never backs down when others are suffering. In some form or another, I hope to be an advocate for any kind of marginalized community or population. I’m not sure exactly that means I will become, but I am currently studying to take the LSATs
… to get my degrees, have a great career and project and be happy doing what I love with my family.
We all have dreams we want to accomplish. Dream is a verb not a noun. As Built by Flaws, we will keep each other responsible and aware that we will work towards our dreams and don’t give up. We will support each other and be there for each other whenever we want to give up. Never tell yourself you can’t do something when times get rough. You got this baby girl and don’t let anyone else tell you other wise.
“The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance – and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.”
– Oprah Winfrey
