...and it has me reflecting on my journey from then until now.
Sometimes I feel like I'm more confused about "what I want to be when I grow up" than I was then.
Hearing that "you can be whatever you want to be" and "create the life you want" is so exciting and full of possibilities; and can be daunting and overwhelming at the same time.
I am often one to take the more creative path, which has allowed me an interesting journey, and sometimes a challenging one. The next step isn't always easy to identify, and the route isn't laid out and clear cut.
For the past 10 years, I have been wiggling and pivoting into the direction that feels right. From tutoring and summer camp counselor to publishing a travel magazine to bartending and waitressing, it is fun to see and realize how all of these experiences have prepared me for this moment and shaped who I am now and the decisions I make moving forward.
I can now say that I am embracing my place in the world of hospitality and event production, and I'm excited about the possibilities within that.
In this video, I share a bit more about my journey up to this point.
