I feel like a stupid, naive twenty year old that wants to change the world. And thinks that she can actually change the world. But the fact is this passionate feeling and hunger to love and to help everyone will die in my dirty thirties.
Ive been doing research on a documentary project Im planning. And I just want to take a moment to express how blessed I am to be able to be a free woman and to be who I am. Im extremely grateful to have an education and to be independent. Im thankful to have arms to write and to hold a camera. Im grateful for legs that I can stand on and travel on. Im grateful for eye sight to taste and experience this world. I wish this for others. I pray to touch people lives one day. I vow before god to make this promise.
