2014 International Student Travel Video Contest Entry
- Evelyn N'gouan
These three past years, I have been nowhere. I just stay in the same place, work everyday and study. I do really need a break but when you think about your finance and your future, you just said it’s not time for a break. I have to keep pushing. If someone asks me a place where I want to go I will definitely say “take me to Coucoue Lodge in Ivory Coast” or to the Caribbean Island… I love those places, I want to enjoy the beach, the sun, the waves, the wind…forget about all this stressful life and how people can hurt you. But life doesn’t always give you what you really want. That’s why you have to work hard for you see your dream comes true. Fatherless, I saw my mom struggling to pay my school fees, private herself to good things just because she wants her kids be successful. For her I will not give up on life. Nothing have been easy for me since I’m in united states but you also have to know that nothing come easy. I graduated from a community college on May; I took the semester off to work trying to save money for my next school. I want to be an accountant and have my master degree. Be able to help my mom and my family. Be a leader for my continent. I know this will not be easy but in everything put God first, he will take care of the rest. Don’t let anybody tell you can’t; only God decides and I’m positive one day will be mine. Good luck to all the participants, never give up in what you truly believe.
