Advice: - Always be the best person you can be. - Be kind even when you're tired. - Listen when someone talks; and really do listen. - Go out of your way to do things for people. - Tell people you love and appreciate them. If someone doesn't see your light, don't worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and light, and they will come ♥️ . . •Top (gift shop in L.A) •Lippie (@nyxcosmetics) . . #longhair

September 13th, 1997. Background: Almost exactly 22 years ago I was hospitalized in this exact place for 13 days. I accidentally suffered from a 3rd degree burn and once I decided to become a social worker I told myself I'd work here for a period of my life. Today, today's that day! For some reason everything has been aligned perfectly for me recently and I couldn't be more grateful. It's unbelievable how today I complete a full circle of life; from having been hospitalized, to working here!! 🥰 . . #SW

Today marks the first day of the last year in my Master's program! I'm ecstatic to see what this busy year awaits for me as a: 1. Full-time student 2. Part-time intern at NYPresbyterian Hospital (ICU) 3. Part-time employee at CSSW 🥰 Background: I grew up in a household where domestic violence was the norm (like in many homes). Seeing someone dear to my heart being beaten 'till blood streamed through their face, hair was torn & bruises were left is still a vivid image. As a (7,8,9y/o) child I'd grab any object to hit the aggressor & serve as a distraction, but I'd often fail & be beaten as well. At the time I lived in a building & I'd run into the hallway yelling for someone to come help, but help never came. I often thought the aggressor would kill my loved one. I'd cry & pray myself to sleep for many years. I remember having to go to the store to buy makeup to cover up the bruises so no one would "find out". I was trained to lie about what went on in my house although all I wanted was to scream & seek for help. Finally, at 14 years-old I decided to speak up. I felt hopeless, frustrated & angry at our situation. But, as an only child & not having an alliance I was terrified for my decision. At that age I encountered the first social worker & it was at THAT moment that I felt heard. She was my light & that's when I realized I wanted to be just like her & work with children/youth. Believe it or not, now I'm grateful for having gone through that because it taught me how to be resilient, mature & affirmed me that God will never put me through something I cannot overcome, ever. I may not be responsible for how I was raised, but I am responsible for my own healing & making sure I leave this earth better than I found it. I speak about this openly because your closest friend/family member may be going through this but social constructs have limited their ability to open up. You SERIOUSLY don't know when it'll be the last time you speak to someone so please check up on your loved ones. People who've been through any abuse may seem "difficult", but sometimes all we want is to protect that scared child within us ♥️ . . #firstdayofschool . . •Shot by @edwinchuyaaa

There's a difference between being interested & being committed. When you are interested, you do it when it's easy. When you are committed, you do it no matter what 💛 . . •Swimsuit @americanapparel •Sunglasses @nordstrom / @nordstromrack . . #neon
