Inspiration behind the audio
Three years ago, I had problems in my school and I almost couldn’t continue my education, I was frustrated, it was a near death experience for me. But amidst all these turbulence I found someone who believed firmly and strongly in me, he constantly reminded me that my present circumstances should not decide my future, in those period, the only thing that kept me going, the only motivation was the consciousness that someone believed in me even when I gave up on myself.
Recently, I had this great idea of starting this podcasts and sharing my stories with people, I was so enthusiastic about it, but I was faced with a lot of challenges that I felt discouraged and wanted yo quit.
Fortunately a senior friend (Uriel) came to my aid and assured me, I could do it and he sounded so convincing that he believed in me and my vision than myself, this gave me the courage to start this that I now do today.
I hope it blesses someone.
