I’ve wanted nothing more in life than to spend my 21st birthday abroad. Strange, one may think (I’m legal elsewhere already), but it’s not about being able to legally drink or whatever. It’s the reason I didn’t go home and spent my first Christmas without my family; The first without my Mami. It’s about turning a lifelong dream into a reality. It’s the spark to light the fire, on the road to making my goals and dreams become accomplishments and reality. I’m making this milestone one to remember, not what it is stereotypes to be.
