#DefineYourDrive: Family

Submitted by: Katelynn Migues I was always the girl who not only doubted herself, but who always seemed to be doubted by others. But ever since I was young, I have always found ways to do things on my own. I always saved money to get what I wanted before anyone could buy it for me and I would save hundreds! I knew what I wanted and I worked hard to make it happen. Through my experiences, I have learned to push myself to keep moving forward. I’m now 21 years old with a home I purchased for myself at …
