I absolutely do. If I don’t, no one else will. I have to prove it to the people who know me, and the people who don’t because every day is a new day.
There are always new faces and new prejudices, people who judge on first impressions. It inspires me to fight.
Sometimes I’ll have bad days where I want to stick my head in the sand like an ostrich. But I wake up the next day, and I’m ready to go after it again. I know I can be anything I want to be. Of course, deciding on a course of action to get there is a whole other story.
