My Testimony: The Miracle In Me
My character to give back to the community was developed at birth. I was not supposed to live, not supposed to survive, and certainly not supposed to thrive. My grand entrance into this world was something you could only imagine from a television show. I was born in my mother’s bed, in her sixth month of pregnancy in Inglewood, California. I had no lungs, and was still in the sac, later the doctors found out that I had two holes in my heart; as a result I have undergone five heart surgeries, four open-heart. One of which I recently had December 2014. As you can probably imagine, my life is full of medical challenges. The challenges that I faced from my medical condition did not restrict me from growing up as a regular child. I was taught how to be self-sufficient, and not to use my condition as an excuse, or a crutch. By learning this, I gained an appreciation for life because my family taught me to give back. Since God chose to give me life, it is my duty to give back to others this great gift he gave me.
