Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm a born and raised Texan, but I've always dreamed about living in Illinois (as unusual as that sounds). I'm battling Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety, but still manage to be academically strong. Currently, I'm a college freshman at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, majoring in business management and leadership with a minor in sociology. My goal is to be a non-profit manager for a mental health organization.

Interesting Factoid

Business Owner Badge Instructor

Oct 2020 - Present
As a volunteer project, I decided to teach fourth and fifth grade Girl Scouts about their business badge. I learned how to effectively communicate complex ideas and concepts to a younger audience. I had to prepare a presentation in advance and rehearse several times to ensure my message was as articulate as I wanted it to be.
