Today my letter is for Erika. She is a 29-year-old woman who spent six months on a mission trip ministering to women who were being sex trafficked. She is a leader in her church, and she is a veteran. She is kind, smart, and married to a man who adores her.
Erika is currently applying to law school and has been down on herself, thinking she won't get in. Erika's sister wrote, "She could really use some encouragement so that her feelings about herself could match how I feel about her."
Here is my letter:
After reading all you have accomplished in your 29 years I am amazed! You have ministered to women caught up in sex trafficking. You are a leader in your church, and you are a veteran. Your character shows strength, ability, and compassion.
Applying to law school may seem like a mountain you can’t climb, but I am confident you can! Look at all you have already done. Many would like to have just ONE of the things you have achieved on their resume!
Erika, I am raising my pom poms high to cheer you on. You have already shown you believe in yourself.
Don’t stop now! Just throw your shoulders back and envision those law school doors opening wide!
