Life is a constant battle.

We go through difficulties every day and often we feel like giving up. But contrary to what we believe, the cards are not stacked up against us. The challenges which burden our lives shape who we are. Only by fighting this battle with all our might can we ever hope to succeed. This battle called life has beaten us to the ground so that we can learn to pull ourselves back up. It has scraped our knees only to teach us how to heal.


This Battle Called Life is a platform for questioning life and finding our way. It is a place to find our voice and to shout once we do. I am open to guest writers because this should be a place where different perspectives and different opinions can intermingle. If you have something to say, I’d love to hear from you!

My mission is to inspire the youth of today to speak up and to stand strong in the face of difficulty. I hope to provide words of encouragement and to speak from my own experience in hopes to inspire people. The pen truly is mightier than the sword because it has the power to unite people. We can fight this battle together.


“The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved.”- Samuel Smiles
