Hi Melissa! I think you are amazing! Thanks for sharing your story with us today. I happened to be subbing for one of those senior classes today and so glad I was able to hear you speak You are so courageous despite of all that you’ve been through. I admire your perseverance and determination to have the greatest outlook on life. No doubt that God has you here fulfilling his divine purpose.
I am hopeful that those teenagers that heard you today will remember your story and think twice before making a dangerous choice.
Again, thanks for sharing such a powerful message of wisdom, love, hope and positivity. You are amazing!
