#WhoIAm: I Am a Strong, Smart and Powerful Woman

Who am I? 

So many phrases come to mind. I am someone who loves life, loves coffee and loves to travel. I am someone who loves to explore the world, loves music and concerts and loves all of the sweet sounds that the world has to offer.

I am also a woman. That's the main thing that comes to my mind when I am asked this question, especially when writing for an online publication such as Her Campus. I am a woman, and, along with that, I am so many other things. 

I am strong. I am smart. I am powerful. I see the troubles in the world, and I do what I can to work through them, and I accomplish good things in a world that could really use a few good things. I am strong in the sense that I can work with what I am given. I am strong because I can stand up to the things that scare me, and I am strong because I work through my personal fears. I am powerful because I stand up for what I can, and I help where help is needed. 

I'm not perfect. I make mistakes just like everyone else, but I try to do the best that I can with the hand that I've been dealt. I like to hang out with friends, get pumpkin spice everything in the fall, get my nails done and stay in for a good, old fashioned girls' night. At the same time, I like to do homework, read as much as I can on topics I find interesting, try my hardest and do my best, both in school and out in the world.

I want to exert a presence of strength, happiness, love and power. I want to be a lot of things, and I always want to be the best that I can be. 

I am doing my best with the beautiful gift of life I have been given, and I will continue to do that for the rest of my life. I may not be perfect, and, in fact, I may be a little complicated in the ways that I think, process and live my life, but I think that's okay. It's what makes me a unique individual. 

I am a woman. I'm also a human being. I am smart, strong, powerful and a little bit of everything in between. And I love living my life as such.

I'm not sure who you are, but I hope you can embrace whoever that person is. I hope that you can come to know, love and appreciate your knowledge, strength and power. I hope that, one day, we can all come to love living our lives as the wonderful people that we are.
