I used to be that girl, you know the one who spent their youth being unsure where she fits into the world? Yup, that was me. I had working experience as an office administrator, sales professional, web & marketing specialist, and fundraiser, but I had a dream to eventually return to school to pursue my ultimate passion in Psychology. You should have heard that inner conversation of all the anxiety and fear and self-doubt … it wasn’t pretty. I did, however, pull myself together and not only return to school, but I have already earned some academic honors.
The reason for this blog is a place for people to get to know me, and a place for me to share my academic papers, studies I am conducting for school, share my music (which keeps me level while I work toward my goals), and share my knowledge gained through years of research and web design.
I am a non-judgmental person who understands that life can be challenging, but I do believe in people regardless of whether they believe in themselves. I have a lot of faith in my Lord, a strong desire to succeed on whatever path I take, and a positive outlook on life. Today I am that girl that rises and takes on the challenges in life whatever they may be. Truly, I never thought I would say that, but I now make Lemonade with all my lemons and value the lemons I have. 🙂 Feel free to reach out anytime, I am a volunteer peer advocate for mental health and will be happy to hear your stories and provide you a friend in the tough times.
