And folks this concept lives on in many black communities today. Ignorance=bondage.

At 23, I haven’t seen much of the world and years from now I want to be able to say I’ve been on every continent. I know that I can be and do anything I set my mind to, but truth is, I’m pretty simple.
I want a career that I wake up excited to go to every morning. Doesn’t have to be at a fortune 500 corporation, or big company….a career that let’s me know firsthand that I am apart of a positive change in a poor neighborhood or in a child’s education. I don’t want a flashy car or giant house with designer clothes and all that expensive stuff.
I want a marriage with someone that I can grow with and learn from and who’s not afraid to let me teach him some things. He doesn’t need to be rich, doesn’t matter what kind of career he has as long as he has one.
I want my own family. At 23, I wake up every morning thinking what would my family dynamic be? How would my life change? And then I can’t wait til that day comes.
I’m really simple and these are the things I look forward to everyday.
