“What represents me best as Mrs. Galaxy International and as a passionate volunteer for the PTA is a quote from John C. Maxwell’s ‘Success One Day at a Time’ where he states, “Think of the pursuit of your dream as being like a major athletic event. Train for it. As you prepare, exercise you will get stronger mentally, emotionally and physically. To successfully achieve your dream, you need to keep improving … keep your body fit; keep your heart flexible; keep your mind open,” Melanie said.
