First and foremost, I would like to say thank you to all of those that have come into my life.
My life has been affected by you no matter how major or minor your contribution has been. There are some of you who have been there since the moment we've met, and others that have come into my life and left spontaneously, or even some that were only meant to be there temporarily from the start. No matter what category you may fall under, you still helped me along the way and were apart of this hectic journey we call life and for that I am truly thankful.
You may have come into my life through a school project, a team or club, or even just someone I may have passed on the street regularly and always flashed me a smile.
Your assistance may have gotten me through school and helped me get the grades I needed that allowed me to continue on my journey toward a better future. For the teammates or club members I never got to know on a personal level, you too helped me out. You helped me learn that coming together for one shared goal regardless of our personal differences is a very vital thing to know how to do for the future.
Finally, I would like to give a huge thank you to those who have been there since day one. I know that whenever I need anyone to turn to, I can turn to you. Whether you're family or a best friend that became close enough to be family or a significant other, you are a very crucial part of who I am today. You all helped me become the person you see everyday. Plenty of you say you're proud of me, but you should know that I wouldn't be this way had it not been for you. You all motivated and pushed me through the craziest of times. If I haven't told you thank you enough times, just know that I am truly grateful for all that you do. Thank you for being my backbone.
So to all of those that I have met along the way, thank you. I truly mean it. Everything happens for a reason, and some people are meant to mean different things for each person. There are a number of factors that helped me get to where I am, and you all had a part in bringing me to this happy place I have finally reached.
