"Vive" in Spanish means "to live". I chose this word because it represents my presence in this life. We only have one life to live. In this life we are put through adversities. We learn to laugh and to love, to hurt and to cry, to explore and to grow as an individual. But most importantly I have learned to live. I thank God every morning for allowing me to awaken. I am so grateful for my family, my culture, and my life experiences, that above all, have taught me to simply "vive".
