“While growing up, someone once told me that life is what you make it. It looks like I took that to heart from a young age because somewhere along the way, I signed up for the greatest journey I could ever imagine, and I’ve been striving to live out that dream ever since. I’m a  powerful blend of a girl with tomboy tendencies,  who is also on a serious mission to leave the world a better place than I found it. Since life truly is what you make of it, and if we are in fact our own authors, may this be the story of a girl who  never settled, dreamed big and always hoped to inspire others to follow suit.” — MB
