Lessons and Blessings

01/17/2018

Jimmy John's - Jaylan Bailey

"I lost my grandfather when I was a sophomore in high school. He was a big part of my life. When I lost him, I kind of shut down for a little bit. It was one of the hardest things I had gone through, but it made me a stronger person. Every time I get down or want to turn away from the good things I’m doing, I just think, this is something he’d want me to do, you know? One thing I always say is ‘lessons and blessings’. There’s no wins and losses in life, just lessons and blessings, and everything happens for a reason. It’s up to you what you take out of every situation you’re put through in life.”

Role Models

 "I was 8 years old when my Dad was shot 5 times, he is paralyzed on the right side of his body. My Mom is such a strong, determined woman. She powers through everything and does it with a smile on her face. So, we grew up watching her help my Dad because he basically had to re-learn everything. That was about 17 years ago and now he walks, talks, and drives…he’s going to Florida by himself this month. They’re my biggest role models. They’ve made me an independent person who knows I’ll be okay no matter where I go. I’m moving to Washington this month and graduating in April!”
