My First Time Of Public

- My first time speaking in public Since i was three years old i’ve been performing in front of people from dance recitals to cheerleading at sporting events.

Change is Good

- Change is scary no matter how many times we’ve done it successfully. We actually make change harder than what it really is.

Marriage Is A Good Thing

- Marriage is a unification between two people who share their love for each other. It is said to bring joy, happiness, and satisfaction to one’s life.

Marriage is something that is supposed to be sacred between two who love each other; not some mere game that can be played with....   [tags: Marriage, Wedding, Woman, Wife]
