I believe in myself. I believe in my ability. I believe if I think I can do it, then I can do it. I have told myself that I am like a duck. Ducks can walk, not too slow and not too fast. Ducks can fly but not as good as other birds. Ducks can swim but not as well as fish. I used to be happy with that; living like a duck – being an average girl. One day I realized what I wanted to do and what I wanted to be. Could I make it? I asked myself, and I wondered if I could do that.
