Currently living in Jacksonville Beach, FL, I was born and raised in the small beach-town of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I graduated from the University of North Florida this past December with a degree in Mass Communication and a concentration in Advertising. My passions include the ocean, surfing, yoga, painting, drawing, writing and traveling. My goals in life are to travel the world, surf perfect waves and experience as many new people and different cultures as possible. I am greatly inspired by passionate, driven individuals.
Graduating from college was bittersweet. On one hand I was so excited, so proud, so ready to be done with school. Yet, on the other hand, I was so nervous, so confused, so not prepared to jump out into the real world. I’m still not. And that’s OK. It’s OK that I don’t want to throw myself into a 9-to-5 desk job. I don’t want to work to live and to continue to work to live for the rest of my life. Because that’s what happens. You get stuck in that cycle, you get comfortable. And comfortable is something I’m just not ready to be. I just wanted to live. Like really live. And experience and learn and grow. And then write about it.
I know I want to find a job that I truly love. I want to wake up every morning and be excited to go to work. I am a hard-worker and dedicate myself to any task or goal I have placed in front of me; even the smallest jobs I try to give 110%. I welcome challenges, they are what help me grow as a person, and within the past year I have really discovered that my passion is writing. I enjoy taking experiences and interpreting them into my own words.
