In a different post, the Guinness record breaker also penned an interesting note in which she expressed satisfaction on achieving many of the dreams and aspirations she held as a child.
“This moment right here brought tears to my eyes as I reflected and had my life do a major replay of all the struggles , pain and negative perceptions I have had to overcome to see this day .
“As a child I looked through the Guiness book of world records and 18 years later I broke a Guiness world record
“As a teenager I pictured my face on bill boards and on tv and I saw it happen , I lived it .
“I watch Movies and motivational speeches done in the honorary gown of a doctorate honor and here I am honored with the least likely career choice .
“I have heard so many doubts that through dance I can amount to nothing not to talk of being celebrated or honored on this level Infact on many levels .
“I am here surrounded by Academics honoring me not for a certificate but for the application of every ounce of knowledge I have acquired in life both in school and on the street.”
