All the hard work was worth it. I got accepted to Harvard at 16!! 😭😭😭 #Harvard #Harvard2022 pic.twitter.com/KjW3pAF0VG— Tha Little Man (@AyrtonLittle) December 13, 2017
The poet wrote, "No Man is an Island", an african proverb says, "It Takes a Village...", a president told us, "... when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together...", all are true and the collective cheers seen in the above video prove it.
Sure there was hard work. Sure there were solitary moments. There was also encouragement, mentoring, teaching and training. None of that happens if we don't work together. Providing the support needed in the rough times and the pipelines needed to fuel the engine.
I shout with my young brother today, excited to see him fly.
Who are you supporting right now? Who can you encourage? How can I lift you up and help you move forward? How can I cheer for you?
Let me know, I am here.
GO GO GO
