    I am extremely PROUD of this young lady. I have always felt that she is special and is destined to accomplish great things along life’s journey, so I am not surprised.
    I congratulate her and her mom who has always been there for her.
    I am grateful that I have been allowed to make a small contribution to her life’s journey so far.
    May the Lord continue to bless you
