So I remember writing on here once how I was never the loudest at school, or the most interactive. My timidity probably restricted me from doing a lot more at school and really has a way of making me feel like the forgotten kid in class.
But not yesterday.
Yesterday, to God’s glory, I was awarded the ‘Katherine Pool Academic Prize of Distinction’ by my school and I couldn’t have felt more blessed and cherished. That shy kid who couldn’t raise her hand up in class was suddenly being commended with the most prestigious award and it literally was such a defining moment for me.
It proved to me that all them tears from the stress of A-levels, the late night calls to my family expressing my worry about how deathly shy I was and so on..was WORTH IT. God succeeded in the end. He elevated me and this isn’t to toot my own horn or anything but is really to let anyone out there who by reading this blog, has identified with any little thing I’ve mentioned, especially concerning the fear of being forgotten; that you’re not alone.
God has ALWAYS got your back and will lift you higher at points you don’t even think you needed to be helped! This prize came as a complete shock to me and has been one of the most humbling experiences.
So thank you SMB for honouring me with this award, thanks to my teachers who put in such hard work in ensuring I got the best out of my school life, thanks to my family for the endless amounts of support and thank you to GOD – the author and finisher of my faith, who never ever lets me down.
