“Am I crazy?!” is a question I have been asking myself a lot lately. With my mind and my heart in a million different places, I suppose it is understandable to be asking myself this. I am a southern girl, attending college in the Midwest, dreaming of living on the west coast. As a student leader, coffee enthusiast and expert over-thinker, I like to keep my plate rather full.
I am a twenty year old college junior, studying public relations and marketing. I currently work as a public relations manager for a museum. While I love this work, I hope to broaden my horizons- rather that be working at a public relations agency, working on a political campaign, or even by creating my own brand. My dream job would be working in public relations for a fashion company, such as Modcloth or Stitchfix. After college, I plan to move to San Francisco. There, I will begin my career and go on many adventures.
In addition, I aspire to make a difference for those suffering with mental illness. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my life, and I wouldn’t wish the heartache, anger, and fatigue I feel on any other soul. Once I begin my career, I would love to volunteer my public relations expertise to a nonprofit organization that offers services to the mentally ill.
While I have much to look forward to, I prefer focusing on the present. That means simultaneously re-watching Friends for the hundredth time, reading a self-help book, cuddling with my dog, and eating a giant bowl of cereal.
So here I am. Doing my best. With just enough madness.
