I was just talking with a friend and realizing I don’t know the day my life changed, but I know what sparked it. It was the moment when I began reacting to people saying “it’s impossible” by saying “watch me.”
Really, can’t I reach “intermediate mid” level Georgian within two months? Watch me. And I scored “intermediate high.”
Really, can’t I learn enough Turkish to visit the country without using English? Watch me. And I navigated Eastern Anatolia using only Turkish.
Really, can’t I galvanize the community to collect enough winter clothing and school supplies to make a difference for refugees from the war? Watch me. And we needed two minibuses to transport everything we collected.
Really, can’t I write and publish my first book? WATCH ME.
