‘Go with the flow’

By Rebecca Pursner

"My square is about following the path that is laid out for me, even if I deviate from it and the outcome isn't necessarily what I had in mind. My square symbolizes my path, how far I've come, and everything I've overcome. I think Oprah Winfrey is a great example of personal resilience because she started basically from nothing, but through hard work, dedication, and most importantly, resilience, she built an empire for herself from the ground up, all the while facing and overcoming rough living conditions, sexual abuse, and failures."
