Personal story: Connecting my experiences with distant inspiring voices

At first, I thought I didn’t matter at all, and I want to say that if you too ever feel that way, it is alright. During my early days as a teenager, my voice was too trivial to be heard. I didn’t find meaning to the words of inspiration I accord to myself. So then, I kept searching for robust and more relevant voices that will speak and assure me that my voice actually matters after all. However, I don’t blame myself too much because growing up as a rural girl, I wasn’t fortunate enough to find a role model in my neighborhood.
