Jamal's story

"Keep pushing. The little things can serve as a tipping point. So don’t give up."

A lot of things have made me smile this week. It’s the little things like seeing friends I haven’t seen in a while; so catching up with them. I saw some stand-up comedy with them and that made me smile.

My biggest struggle right now is deciding where to eventually live. As much as I hate to say it, it’s hard to choose between here and the States. I’m from the States but I’ve lived here back and forth as my Mom lives in England. Right now though my aspirations are to go back to the States and hopefully get a good job in the financial industry.

Whatever the struggle, you just have to keep pushing. The little things can serve as a tipping point. So don’t give up.
