I know this isn’t exactly what happened, but last year when I started Hold On Another Day as a business in Emerson’s e3 program, our professor asked us to draw what a five year plan would look like. I’ve always had this vision for a music festival or tour to benefit different causes and bring people out to discuss social issues through music, so I drew myself standing on stage, sharing my story of overcoming depression through music and asking the audience to find hope in what we’re doing. Even though I’m back in Boston now, I feel like a completely different person. Because I feel like I have finally recognized what I want to spend my life doing. And this is it. I know I’m not totally realistic all the time, but, then again, “the people who think they are crazy enough to change the world, are the ones that do.” Thank you to all my amazing friends and family who have supported me with this idea over the past three years. There’s so much more to come!
I saw a vision of mine start to come true this weekend.
Never, ever, EVER give up on your dreams. I promise you the feeling of seeing something in reality is far greater than any amount of money someone could offer you.
The world is waiting for you to make a change. It’s not waiting for you to give up.
