Has there ever been times in your life where you wonder where you’re going in life. That’s what I am currently going through at the moment. There are times in my life where I feel confused about where I am going in life. I have faced my fair share of struggles in my life. I have wished that I was normal for quite a while now. I have been battling depression for years now. I myself feel like more should be done with shedding light on depression as a whole. I feel that there is always hope with no matter how you are feeling. I know that I am only one person. My family has been a huge inspiration to me in so many ways. I know that I can do whatever I can do anything in my life no matter who says otherwise. The only person who would get in the way is me. Never give up and don’t let your struggles get in your way of doing what you love to do in life.
AMCPress isn’t afraid of discussing topics that aren’t discussed a lot in mainstream media. Depression is something that is rarely discussed. It seems like it is a taboo topic to discuss. What’s your opinion?
This is the type of thing that makes me proud to be a Star Trek Fan, and makes me proud to say that Sir Patrick Stewart deserves the Unofficial AMCPress Award for Male Integrity. This man has guts and the things he says that happened to him brought a tear to my eye
Life is always filled with challenges no matter who you are. This month I had my fair share of challenges in life. I have been feeling down about has happened in my past. Today, I realized that my relatives aren’t as close as we once were. My grandma was the one person who kept everyone together. She passed away in 2002. It was very hard for me not to mention she was there for me when I was going through rough times in my life. May is a challenging month for me.
Have you ever felt like life has been throwing you a curve ball?
There has been times I felt like nothing is going right in my life then I think about everything I have accomplished in life. There has been times where I felt down and out I really think about all the friendships I made. You can overcome those challenges in your life. When things start to feel like nothings going right always think of your goals.
I know that those challenges I have won’t hinder me. I will continue to be successful when it comes to helping others. I am not going to give up. Your not a lone especially when you feel like things aren’t going as planned.
“So show a little inspiration/ show a little spark/ show the world a little act when you show it your heart/ we’ve got two lives–one we’re given,/ and the other one we make/ and the world won’t stop/ and actions speak louder/ listen to your heart”- Unknown
We all have the ability to be an inspiration to those around you. You have the ability to make a difference in the world no matter how big or small it is. We can speak out about causes you support. Never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
There is times we may feel down in life. You aren’t alone with feeling down. You can get through it sometimes you may not see the potential you have in life. I have days where I feel down about myself. When I feel down I think of how much I accomplished in my life. I think of those who read AMCPress and those who follow AMCPress. You can make a difference in others lives.

Hagan’s talent, tap dancing to James Brown’s “Get Up Off of That Thing” and her response to the question of whether or not armed guards should be placed in elementary schools, to which she responded: “we should not fight violence with violence” helped her in her quest to win the pageant.
Hagan defeated Miss South Carolina, Ali Rogers who took second and Miss Oklahoma, Alicia Clifton who finished third.
According to the Huffington Post Hagan was awarded a $50,000 college scholarship and gets the crown for one year.
