Growing up in Duquesne has had its ups and downs. I have learned a few things that I’m proud of and a few more things that I’m not so proud of. Each morning I put my best foot forward, believing God to add the increase. And I pray that God will continue to examine my heart and remove anything that’s not like Him. I am grateful for my life, it’s never been easy but I can tell it was designed for me. I’m living out scenes that I have already seen. Those visions help me when I get down or start messing up. I like a lot of things and I love a lot of people but God has been amazing to me. I hope that when you look at me it shows.
I know the Lord doesn’t smile or even ignore disobedience but His forgiveness is key. People want to judge and condemn one another, but we all fall short. My students were not born into a perfect world with perfect people so we take it one day at a time and help one another. That’s what families do, love and support one another. However, families aren’t perfect either. I want my students to be aware of the realities of their environment, so they can make smart decisions in life. I want them to become learners and positive thinkers. Understanding that they are not perfect I expect them to get tripped up. I also expect them to dust themselves off and try again. Virtuous Academy is here to stay, this is for Duquesne!
