    "Have no fear. Go on your instinct. Never regret your decisions. Use every single skill, passion or ability and work to do your best, even if it means going against all the odds. Overcome the odds and show the true strength of what it is to be human. Never take your body and health for granted - NEVER abuse yourself no matter how bad things get. Live strong and don't die young. Life is an experience - always remember the good times along with the bad."
