Akeelah and the bee

Akeelah and the bee is a movie about a little girl that felt she could never fit in, but she was smart, really smart, but other people just couldn't see it. This movie has a lot of good values, especially about having a big heart.
I've never heard of this movie before, i decided to watch it because my mom told me to, and she was right, this movie was great! Its so touching, and i know it will make you cry with joy *well, at least i did* ;)
When she was feeling down, her spelling bee coach told her a really good quote, and it goes like this :

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." 
- Marianne Williamson
so, tell me, who are you not to be? because the only person pulling us back, is ourselves.
