Good afternoon,

My name is Oyinade Koyi and I am a twenty-three year old African American female in search for what makes life grand. Today I woke up with purpose. I got up in time to get dressed and do everything I needed to do except apply my teeth whitening treatment. (We’ll talk about that later.) Unfortunately, my niece did not wake up in time and missed her school bus. It was now my responsibility to take her to school. All ready to go, my niece and I got into the car and drove off. Reaching the stop sign at the end of our block, I noticed my car was driving funny. I got out and looked at my tires and there it was, a flat. I was upset and confused. I went out last night and there was no indication that my tire was getting flat. Fortunately and without panic, I called my dad like I always do for these type of issues. He came out, put on my spare and I was quickly on the road again.
