To the Osakue family, who have been nothing but a true blessing in my life. [[page 2]]Her name is Noyoze I. Osakue. Noyoze is a motivated girl who is willing to take on anything that comes in her way of achieving what she wants to do in life. [[page 3]]Noyoze was born on April 12th, 2006 in Canarsie, Brooklyn. She grew up with 2 Nigerian-American parents who had gone through hard times that led them to be successful in their respectful professions. [[page 4]]Noyoze encounters ups and downs in her life. Bullies telling her "she ain't good enough", "she can't do this", "she can't do that," and "she doesn't have what it takes to do well in life." She felt sad and felt that she was being pulled down. But then she heard multiple voices inside of her head.
(This involves all options before Mom, LOL)
"Noyoze Imade Osakue. Where do you come from? You come from a household where we value education the most. You have me, you have your mom, you have everything that you need in order to succeed in life. Don't you let these low-lifes tell you that you cannot succeed in life. Trust me. You are going to succeed because I know you. You are hardworking, you care about your grades, you ask for help, you go to tutoring when you need to. That is the motivation of a person who is willing to do well in life. You can do it, my daughter. You just have to believe in yourself. I love you dearly." "Honey. You know the reason why they are saying that to you? It is because they are jealous of you. They just wanna target people who they can hurt easily. You gotta stay strong for yourself. Don't let people think that you are weak. Be the opposite of that. You are one of the strongest people that I know. If I can be an businesswoman, and if your dad can be a professor of economics, you can be that somebody. Have confidence in yourself. I love you, sweetheart." [[page 5]]"HEY. SNAP OUT OF IT. DON'T LET THESE PEOPLE BRING YOU DOWN AND START TELLING YOU SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT DO. YOU ARE WORTH IT. YOU ARE SMART, DETERMINED, AND MOTIVATED!! KNOW THAT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND AND YOUR HEART INTO IT! NOW GET OUT OF THAT MOOD AND BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE, SUPERSTAR :))!!" She knew that they were right, smiled, and followed what they told her. [[page 6]]She was motivated to major in STEM in college, specifcally Computer Science because she loved to program while dealing with technology. She knew that whenever she wants to do anything that has to deal with programming, she knew that she had to take Calculus, Physics, and Statistics as well. Noyoze knew it was going to be a hard challenge but she was determined to go through the struggle to pursue in what she wants to do in college. Noyoze always attended classes, always did her homework, got good grades while taking tests, & attending tutoring when she needed it the most. It was tough going through the struggle but it was worth it for her. [[page 7]]At the end of the day, she was well equipped. After 1 year of going through all of these courses, she was able to get used to these courses that she may face in college and from an early start in high school, she was able to get a strong hold of these courses saying, "I'm ready." Thanks to her support-group, she was able to go through the struggle, only to find out that because she got good grades in all of her computer science related courses, she was able to get into a well-known college that has a special school for computing which made her feel very excited and determined to pursue her goals in becoming a computer programmer. Noyoze Osakue is really a hardworker. [[page 8]]The End :)
