NH native // College of Charleston graduate // Boston, MA
If my 23 years of life have taught me anything, it’s this:
- learning is a lifelong process
- opportunities are hiding around every corner
- I’m happiest when I’m growing and striving for (read: straight crushing) my goals
Everyone I’ve crossed paths with has helped shape my view of the world. Growing up in Seacoast New Hampshire was a bit like living in a bubble, but I have had excellent mentors and experiences that helped me realize just how enormous the world is, and how wonderfully diverse its people are.
I graduated from College of Charleston in May 2015 and spent a year living in Northern Thailand, where I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to high school students. It was scary moving to the other side of the world, but I quickly felt at ease among the Buddhist temples, lush landscapes and incredibly friendly locals, and couldn’t have imagined a more fulfilling experience.
Ultimately, however, America was calling me home. While some might dread it, I missed the “hustle and bustle” of daily life–the sense of urgency and purpose that jolts me out of bed in the morning. I missed the suede boots I bought in Italy and my go-to sushi place in Charleston.
I had a renewed motivation and determination to jump into my professional life and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I moved to Medford, MA with my boyfriend of three years and am now a Brand Communications Intern at Cone Communications in Boston.
Through my blog, I hope to provide insights and advice for millennials and young professionals like myself who are striving to succeed, while juggling relationships, friends, finances, and physical and mental health.
