Finishing Strong with Nick Vujicic

Ever since the beginning of senior year, there has been a mantra that I’ve taken with me wherever I go.

“Finish Strong.”

I suppose our English teacher was trying to protect us from the oh-so-contagious senioritis. She reminded us that we had to be resilient no matter where we were in our lives. With her, there was no such thing as textbook trauma or the classroom coma—you should be present in mind and body every day. Whether it was the first day of class, or the last day getting our diplomas, we always had to finish strong. And we did.

I’ll never forget the day we watched Nick Vujicic’s video to send the message home. A man with no arms, and no legs, but the strongest of spirits encouraged us that we should always “get back up.” Nick is living proof that no matter what physical or mental limits, you can always finish strong.

You can imagine how thrilled I was to learn that Nick is coming to my hometown this weekend to speak. I am beyond ecstatic and I hope that I will get to meet this amazing mentor. After having read his book, which you can see here, it would mean so much to hear Nick’s words in person. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Here are the details for where Nick will be this weekend:

I hope you always finish strong.

Keep shining,
