Natalia (75 words)



Natalia admitted getting in her own way in the past, but it took a few beat downs for her to realize she needed to be the driver of her own journey and that no one could do it for her.  So, even though , to use her mom’s phrase  she didn’t have two nickels to rub together, she mustered the strength to  walk  away from  a man who said no one else would want her.
