Hey y’all, my name is Hope and I am 18 years old. I like animals, dancing, acting like a child, and making people smile. My dream one day is to travel the world, one state at a time. Meeting people is one of my favorite hobbies. I love to write and have loved it ever since I can remember. I have been through a lot of ups and downs (it’s funny because my last name is Downs) in my short life, along the way of hospital visits, dance auditions, and balancing the many things I do in one day. In September of 2014, I found God and was forever changed. I have quite the past, and for the longest time I have sat low in my thoughts and let them consume me. Now, along with the help of my amazing family and friend support group, I have begun to love myself again, and have turned my circumstance into my testimony of love, forgiveness, alternatives to self harm, and just encouraging others by my writings. Nowadays you can find me being the most goofy person ever, saying hey to random people in the hallway, dancing like nobody is watching and just living for The Lord. I attend college in Spartanburg, majoring in Psychology. My longterm plan is to be a Child Life Specialist! Thanks so much for reading my blog, God Bless!
