Hi, I’m Melissa.
You can see that I have amazing potential.
I’m just not ready yet and I don’t want to be pushed.
Sometimes I just like to think about all the possibilities,
all the wonderful things I will do some day.

I think I could be really famous.
I’m a pretty good dancer, you know,
and I like to sing but maybe not so much in front of people.
My friends all tell me that I have style.
I could be a fashion model!
Or a scientist!
My grandmother says that I am really smart
and should use the brains that God has given me.

I think this is going to work out really well
Just now I am waiting for the right moment.
Do you ever feel like that?
You know, just waiting for the right moment?

In the meantime
It’s really good that I am patient with myself.
