Don’t JUDGE My GRADES
I’d had so much love for Music and theater Arts. I had even believed I was going to chase it not just for the LOVE and Passion for it but also as a Professional in My Career line.

YOU failed ONCE, Failed TWICE and even FAILED AGAIN on a Succession but it doesn’t mean YOU are not good at that which YOU were CREATED or Meant for. Because YOU didn’t do it WELL is no good reason to accept that YOU aren’t fit for IT.
If YOU must learn today, Please LEARN to know that YOUR GRADES shouldn’t be the CRITERIA for Man’s Judgments
