Because you need a list you can come back to, to gaze upon, to find courage in, to inspire you after a setback.

And I figured my first self-published piece should be one that will inspire me and I will have full control over.

But first, a pep talk

Dear Nika,

You are a hard worker. You are smart. You know how to balance it out and take care of yourself. You know when to work your ass off and you know when to rest. You are kind. You are helpful. You know how and when to set boundaries. You stand up for yourself. You are constantly working to make yourself better than you are. You are constantly working to become a better version of yourself. You are a good daughter. A good sister. A good friend. You make mistakes but you are willing to learn from them and become better. You apologize when necessary and you learn. You work on your mental health, your emotional state, and your physical being. You are amazing and you can do anything you set your mind to.

  3. Made it to my desired university for my Master’s Degree, in 2020.
  4. Made it into the all-India selection list, in the third position for a degree in Gender Studies…
