Lessons Learned

Some lessons I learned is that everyone has adversities and triumphs in their lives. You just have two options which is either to quit what is stopping you or keep on trying till the obstacle gives up. You might have many triumphs right after the adversity blocking your future. Eleanor and Jackie both had many great triumphs past some adversities. So this taught me to never give up to anything so you can enjoy your life like you are supposed to.
