Undergrad has been such a journey for me. I can’t believe it’s over. It feels like every year was it’s very own life in some sort of way. I won a beauty pageant in my freshmen year (what?!?!), I started my own poetry organization, published my first book, got to study away in Europe and Dubai and got accepted into my dream graduate school program! I mean, come on. These past few years have been jammed packed if you ask me.
Now it’s summer and I’m preparing for what’s next but you know this is hard. I accepted my first full-time position while still in school and after months of working there, I think my exhaustion caught up with me. It took me such a long time to realize that I was in a really good company working a fairly good job with great benefits and pay for someone right out of school but in a position that did not have anything to do with what I had just studied in undergrad.
Through this experience, I realized how important it is for me to work for a cause that’s meaningful for me. I have no shade towards the company I worked for, but I remembered what my unique talents were and I was not at all putting them to use at work. So, I have been working on this new project called What’s Your Superpower? My purpose is to get people excited about the gifts they already have and to start really putting them to use.
I am also getting back into YouTube! I have a lot of interesting things to show you guys and as I make my way through graduate school, I really hope to bring some help to those who are thinking about graduate school but have no idea how to apply or the possibilities that lie ahead. Applying to graduate school was a lot of work! There are so many programs and so many different routes to go and options to weigh in terms of funding, location, time, and quality of education. I will definitely be talking about why I chose my program at Georgetown University, some of the struggles and challenges I am facing as well as some of the awesome things I’ll be learning there! Stay tuned.
