JaQuiondia Banks 1990 (MILWAUKEE, WI)

Who Am I?
Who am I? Why, should you ask?
I am someone with feelings and emotions that are attached
I am not perfect; I make mistakes just like everyone else
But my past mistakes do not define my present and future self
I am resilient, I don’t view my past set back as failures
I view them as lessons and bounce back quicker than ever
I am someone who preserve through my darkest times
Even when there is no light to shine
I am optimistic, I see the gold lining in every situation
I remain hopeful no matter what I may be facing
I am ambitious, I have big dreams that most would say is impossible
But I believe I can achieve the optimum
I am confident in my capabilities
Me giving up is not a possibility
I am intelligent, my intellect is what is going to get me far
I may be your number one idol or superstar
I am spiritual, my guidance comes within my belief in God
Those who are atheists may claim it to be odd
I am persistent, to be the best version of myself I can be
I am the future we all need
if you do not believe me, watch and see
