My life is nothing less of an eventful journey. Where I have beautiful memories to cherish, I also have a long list of never-ending struggles. There have been many times when I had given up but the thought of my two kids has kept me going.

In the face of struggles, I have learned so much about life and how crooked our society is. Or better still, how twisted people in my life have been who in turn shape society. It is true when they say that it is in the trying times that you find your true friends/well-wishers. However, I found Allah (God). I feel with my struggles, I became closer to Him. He gave me the strength to stand up tall and provide for my kids. After Him, most of my strength came from my parents who became my backbone through all the adversities of life. These people become your moral strength but it is you in the end who has to build your own life piece by piece.

I joined Emerald Labs over a year ago and stepped into a domain that I had never explored before. I am grateful for the trust that the management put in me. Over this period I realized that you can achieve anything if you put your effort into it. I wish to teach the same to my kids; to never give up and find your potential. There is nothing in this world that is impossible to achieve. It may definitely be difficult but it isn’t impossible.

I have had my fair share of struggles while I wish for them to end, but I also know that over the years I have become strong enough to overcome those. I am not entirely there yet but I have come a long way. I wish to share the same with anyone who is reading this and going through a difficult time; don’t quit. Keep moving forward and you will reach your destination.
