Struggle

Maurelle Bagus
Class of 2014

If you know me at all, or have seen me around campus, you know that I am constantly struggling. From tripping, to falling or dropping things. My life is a constant struggle and although some may find it embarrassing, this is an aspect of my life I have come to embrace. Yeah, I'm clumsy and stumble with my words sometimes, but this is part of who I am. Everyone struggles and struggling is past of growing up. Struggle makes a person strong and develop though skin. I've learned that struggle is nothing to be ashamed of because "without struggle there is no progress."
