Not many know my story with how I got to Vegas and why I came to Vegas, I was looking for hope searching for that light at the end of the tunnel. That light came to me in form of an angel by the name of Anna Smith. Back in February 2016 I found myself depressed, living right on Las Vegas Boulevard searching for hope. I was about to give up on working for a company that I loved when I got a phone call from one of my coworkers wondering where I had been and why I was not at work. During that time I was going through the loss of my older sister who lost her battle to cancer, that sadness swallowed me up whole and was taking me into a dark abyss that I had a hard time crawling out of. I was falling deeper and deeper into this darkness to add to the despair one night my friend called me to invite me to dinner, he was desperately trying to help me out, I accepted his invitation and we went out to dinner. He picked me up and off we went. While at dinner he told me that a new position had come up with my company and he knew I was perfect for the job. I was just ready to go back and head back to California, he was kind and talked me through my troubles and told me to give this new position a chance. I agreed and told him the next day I would go give it a shot as a last resort, unbeknownst upon returning back to my apartment I came back to a shocking surprise, I could not find my car! Did someone steal it, did someone take it? I knew in the back of my head what had happened, it had not been stolen it had been what we all fear when we fall behind on our car payments, yes the scary word, REPOED! I just did not know what to do. Depressed and now without a car I felt helpless. My friend encouraged to still give it a go and call the next day for the new position, he told me I know you are perfect for this job so I did hesitantly. When I called I remember hearing this different accent I did not recognize, it was an accent of a beautiful Armenian woman that without me knowing would soon change my life and not just mine but my children's as well, her name was Anna Smith. Anna asked me to come in that day if I could, but how could I right away? I did not have a car, was low on money and was walking everywhere. I told Anna my car was currently at the shop but I could be there the next day. She agreed to my interview for the next day. I remember thinking to myself how in the world was I going to do this without a car? But I soon changed my focus and told myself to give it a chance. So I walked into the deeding department for Westgate, I did not have fancy clothes, did not have fancy nails, did not have fancy hair, did not have fancy shoes but what I did have was hunger. I was hungry to succeed, I was hungry to make that sacrifice I had made to leave my children back in California worth something. There must have been something that Anna saw in me that day, she overlooked my clothes, shoes, nails, hair what she saw was me! She saw something that she found of value, she saw my conviction, dedication, persistence and passion. She gave me chance that changed my life in ways I could never imagine. I will never forget the time she would take out of her day to find out about me and my story to know who I really was and why I was there. Angel's come in many forms and when you least expect them. I will forever be grateful for my angel on earth who changed my life forever and kept my hope alive. So Anna Smith please know that you made a difference in not just one life but four others by the name of Kyla, Silas, Daisy and Rhea and for that I am forever grateful to you and your kindness and ability to see beyond the physical (clothes, shoes, nails, hair) but beyond that a woman who was doing everything within her power to make a difference in the most important people in her life, her children. You are our guardian Angel. My children were proud of what I began to do and the places we were going, I worked had day after day without hesitation or complaint because what was behind was hunger, depression, loneliness, despair but what was ahead of me was hope, living a life to the fullest and the making of dreams come true. So Anna if you ever feel down just remember you have the power to change one persons life and you can do it over and over and the greatest joys come from giving. Thank you for giving me a chance to be who I was meant to be... someone who has hope even during the darkest hours.
Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.
