Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and decided I wanted to move to a bigger city which had more to offer. I refuse to be in a career where I am unhappy with my work. I am an artistic and social individual and I want to incorporate that with the business side of me and what I'm studying and working towards. I believe my impact on others is very important and I wish to spread messages that resonate with others through my work. I feel this way working as a Brand Ambassador, where I incorporate both the business side of it with the artistic side of social media. I am excited to learn more and continue on this journey.
