You are a good person. Cincinnati cares about you, we have not forgotten about you. The community in our city wants to encourage and help you grow into the best possible person you can become.

I want to see you change the world because I know you can.

I believe that people are shaped by the hardships they are able to overcome. Your story is one that needs to be heard to help change Cincinnati and America. Only you can help us transform our society so others don’t experience what you are experiencing. To be honest, you will need to focus on your education to help us. An education will give you the tools you need. Reading, writing, critical thinking skills, public speaking, and so much more are necessary to be successful and learned in school. Without these tools, it is nearly impossible to get your message out to the world. I know, school isn’t always fun and it can be hard. But imagine how different the world would be today if someone such as Martin Luther King Jr. had not taken school seriously. Education was so important to him that he received a Ph.D. in 1955 and he was able to use it to change the world. I know that you have that power within you.

Life isn’t fair, but use this to make you stronger and wiser. Don’t let this push you down, instead let it build you up. Lean on the community who wants to help you, who wants to hear what you have to say. You are worthy of our support, and we want to help you in any way you need.
