"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, and how you can still come out of it. You must persevere, for it is in the face of adversity that we discover our true strength." - Maya Angelou
This stole features the "perseverance" symbol AKA "wawa aba". The literal translation of "wawa aba" is "the wawa tree's seed". The wawa tree's seed is known for being extremely hard. This wawa aba symbolizes toughness and your ability to persevere through difficulty to get to where you are now.
