During a recent trip to The National Museum of American Jewish History, our Bloomberg Interns explored the stories of people who relied on their own personal strengths to face choices, challenges, and opportunities on their paths to remarkable achievements. We asked our interns to reflect on what strength means to them….
What is Strength?
I recently heard someone say
“strength is a pill you just gotta swallow everyday.”
Everyone is strong in their own way.
Having perseverance when you
thought all hope was gone.
Just getting up everyday proves
you are strong.
I’m coming out of a protective barrier,
letting myself give a hand to those in need.
I’m open to listen,
to learn new things,
to talk freely,
to smile at those that surround me.
How Do I Know If I am Strong…
You ever think about how you make it through the day
Without a word to say?
Wondering if you will be ok?
But you will.
And I know that for a fact.
Because you are strong and you’ve come a long way.
You will go very far!
