After walking for what felt like an eternity, Alexis found a spot to sit on a high hill to enjoy the scenery all around her. A few minutes had passed by before the moment really sank in that she was in an area that felt impossible to reach ten years ago. Back then, she was 21 and still living with her mom in an apartment.

 

Alexis reminisces watching her mom struggling to keep the apartment because of her unstable financial situation. She also remembers getting the eviction papers on their door every two months. The one thing Alexis said to herself is that she didn't want to be living like that if she ever gets into a groove life-wise.

 

Little did Alexis know is that two years later, she would get an apartment of her own and a solid housekeeping job that could help her with the rent. She jumped for joy when she finally had her own place & freedom from her overbearing mom. Things would get even better for Alexis when she found a job ad for a Cruise Line. This was a dream for Alexis.

 

She could travel to another part of America she's never been exposed to. So Alexis applied online and within three days, she heard from a recruiter. Alexis was so thrilled, this step led her to work on a cruise ship that led her to where she is now, sitting in a gorgeous place with breathtaking mountains & hills all around her.

 

Alexis's life has really taken off the last ten years. She thought as she took in the amazing view of mountains & hills around her. Tears of joy begin to come out of her dim eyes. She felt alive and didn't want this feeling to ever end.
