Part I who i am.
Personal Manifesto. The Definition of Me. My life is a beautiful harmony of adrenaline and tranquility. Sometimes it feels like a controlled chaos. And I love it. In the past year Iâ€™ve jumped backwards off a waterfall, watched the sunset crawl over a quiet lake, started hiking at midnight to see the sunrise from the top of a mountain, and ran a marathon just to prove to myself that I could. Everything I do helps to shape who I am. I am strong. I am happy. I am proud of who I am, and that is what best defines me.
Quotes That Inspire Me. “How can I know limits from lies, if I never try?” -Lyrics from “The Melting Point of Wax” by Thrice
“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist.” -Charles Baudelaire “Just do it.” -Nike
