…because essentially that’s what I did! It took four long years but I did it! I officially have my Bachelors of Business Administration from Belmont University, the school everyone expected me to fail out of. To get too Homesick and run away from. To realize it was too crazy of a dream and pick something more practical.
I won my World Series.
Some people dream of finding love and some to spend forever with (the MRS Degree). Some people dream of traveling the world. Some people just want to do better than their parents. I’ve always wanted to be better and do better than what people expected me to do. Tell me I can’t do something only fuels me. I’m stubborn and Hard Headed. I know what I want and I go after it no questions asked, no consequences considered.
And yeah I fall on my ass quite a bit… and I usually say shit I shouldn’t…and what usually looks like failure probably is…but I never live this life with regrets. I love fiercely and wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’ve worked my butt off to be someone in this industry and that’s what I plan to do.
I want to be a mix of Hillary Clinton, Blair Waldorf, and Olivia Pope. A Lawyer with class and a woman with wit and intelligence. I want to help people, serve justice, and care about people. I want people to know my name and know these things about me. “I come from a long line of sinners like me…” who paved the way for me to get here. My grandparents were rebels…they came from virtually nothing and overcame things I am blessed never to experience. They finished high school and loved and raised their kids…who loved and raised me on partial college degrees…they set me up for this. I am the first College Graduate in my family…and as long as I’m around I’m going to make sure my brother and eight other cousins do too.
But for now I have to focus…I have this thing called law school to try my hand at. And its gonna be awesome.
