How do I even begin to describe Angelina? During a time where I felt very alone and distant from my family, Angelina showed me kindness, love, and compassion. I must admit I wasn’t the easiest person to like at the time, but not once did she ever make me feel any less than anyone; she never judged my actions even though some were quite big; instead, she helped me to overcome those problems, and she taught me how to forgive myself.
When Angelina helped me, she was not working professionally in the field, but I can’t stress enough how professional she felt in the most loving form. I truly felt her love towards me, and her want to see me doing better. She would often house me and was disposed to financially aiding me too at the time.
It’s really beautiful and touching when someone goes above and beyond to show you they are there for you. Angelina made me feel safe when I felt lost and scared, and she made me feel appreciated and strong. At the time, I was working three jobs to afford my rent and studying full time, I was on the verge of a mental breakdown, and I felt like I would have to drop out of university. However, she reminded me of my worth, power, intelligence and inner beauty and told me to stay strong and have faith. It may have taken me longer than usual to finish my degree, but I completed it. As I said, if it weren’t for Angelina reminding me of what I was and am capable of doing, I would have dropped out, and that would have made my situation a lot worse; completing university has always been a dream of mine.
In short, Angelina helped me to achieve my dream, and today I am in a much better place thanks to her help. I still speak to Angelina today, and I know she will always help me if I need it and care about me, always. There is no price that I can put on the massive role she played in my life, and I sincerely hope that I can repay her for what she has done for me one day.
