I am selfish, independent, hard working, and a pure dream-chaser. I remember the moment I had to introduce myself as Mekayla Eppers after we got home from our honeymoon and I felt like part of me died inside.
I didn’t accept my battles as my future. I don’t use my past as a crutch. I don’t identify with those events that happened to me. Those aren’t acceptable excuses to live a mediocre life. I am not a victim, I am a survivor.
