Confessions of an Overachiever: I feel the fear, and I do it anyway.

"The ideal person for me to date would be blind, so that they wouldn't be scared away by the way I look." 
- Mahlena-Rae Johnson to herself for most of her life

I know what I want, and I go after it. Hard.

That often requires imagination, because I want a lot of big things and big ideas that don't get much representation in reality.

For instance, on my Dream Board, I created an image that says, "Billionaire Mum."

C'est moi!
Ou, ce sera moi.

There aren't that many mothers who are billionaires out there, and only one woman billionaire I know of who is black.

"It's meee!"
