My Story

 

It's probably not that different from yours!

I grew up in the Midwest, after high school I went to a big instate university, 40 minutes from home. I  joined the dance team, majored in fashion design, life was good. College for me was an incredible experience, so many amazing memories, lifelong friendships and the joy of having more freedom than high school (which I took full advantage of ;) However, where my story really begins is right after college.

This is where my next chapter started.

I graduated college early and moved straight to Los Angeles, CA. I remember feeling this excitement that I had life all figured out. This is the beginning of the rest of my life, I am an adult, heck yes!  I was in the fashion industry, with a heart as big as the sun and dreams that could touch the stars. I was so ready for my next chapter! Or so I thought...

I don’t think any parent, teacher, friend, professor, or adult can fully prepare you for your life after college.

 
 

 I remember so many times feeling lonely, not knowing who to turn to for advice, I didn't want to ask my parents because I was trying to be an independent adult, I would ask friends, but they were just as lost as I was. Right out of college there is so much pressure to know what we want to do with the rest of our lives, so many paths to choose from, and we have no one telling us what the “right” path is.

This feeling that I experienced for a few years after college is the feeling that motivated me to start my mentorship program two and a half years ago. The intention was to just share anything I could of my own story, in hopes it would connect with another 20 something girl out there, feeling as lonely and lost as I was, to remind them:

It is going to be ok. You are not alone. The “right” path is the path you are on in this moment. No one has the answers of what you should do next, those are all within yourself.   This was just a few short years ago for me, so believe me these memories are not far from the surface. I was in your shoes so recently, I still have moments where I ask myself, “Where am I?” “Who’s life is this?” I feel I should still be in my dorm room sitting on my bunkbed cramming for my exam the next day.“How did I get here?”

 
 

Life goes by so quickly, I would love to support you during this next chapter, so you don’t wake up one day and realize you never even opened the book.
