When I was born, there was a big chance that my mother and I would not survive. My mother was in labor for 24 hours and even told my grandmother that there was a letter she wrote to me in case something were to happen and she died at childbirth. I was on the edge of death because my umbilical cord was wrapped around my neck for a long period of time. My mother passed out when she finally gave birth to me. The doctors saw that my face was blue and couldn't do anything. Then out of nowhere, I started crying and started breathing again. After a few hours, my mother was holding me. At the age of 4, I had speech capabilities of a 2 year old. Having a conversation was hard enough, but public speaking...you can forget about. My parents sent me to a speech therapist in Memphis, Tennessee and there was progress being made since day 1. In 2014, I received a superior rating in the category "short sermon" at an Assembly of God national fine arts competition in Columbus, Ohio, which is the highest superior rating you can receive. I was one of the only two participants to get a superior rating from the state of Alabama. Now, I started a ministry called ZH Youth Ministries, which allows me to speak in churches and public events. From my story, God can make the impossible become possible. My hope comes from Him!
