Melissa’s Motivational Quotes for April

It’s time for Melissa’s Motivational Quotes for April!  We are so sad to say goodbye to Melissa as she moves on to new opportunities. She has chosen Maya Angelou for her parting words of wisdom. 

 

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

— Maya Angelou

“Every student who is brave enough to start their journey at LIFT has a remarkable story to tell.  We have been so enlightened and graced by these stories – each unveils a deep longing for self-fulfillment. I have been so humbled to watch these students work hard to gain the tools they need to finally be able to tell and write their magnificent stories.” 

–Melissa

“My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.”

— Maya Angelou

All of us who are lucky enough to work and volunteer here understand this. Many of our students have had to navigate the world sometimes feeling like they are in the dark. But they have always had the light of wisdom and determination inside them. They have shown the resilience and diligence to get through many obstacles. How beautiful to see them now burning brighter!

–Melissa
