#DearErica

The minute I watched you walk on that stage, I knew I had found my person. There’s just something about you that is very endearing. You radiate so much warmth, sincerity, fire and rawness. I’ve never wanted a total stranger to succeed so much. Maybe it’s because everyone says I look like and remind them of you, or because I can relate to a lot of things about you on a deep level. It’s like a personal mission for me and I feel so invested in doing whatever I can to make that happen for you. 

I hope you realize that you are loved, completely. That you are a truly beautiful and wholesome person (flaws and all). That you are enough, your feelings are valid and your dreams, attainable. You deserve to be here, right now and in this time. You’re a star, one that will never struggle to shine. 

Keep that beautiful smile on your face always. Will always root for you. I love you.
