From baking and reading to crafting and spending time outside, my interests are wide and varied, but my creative outlet will always be writing. Ever since I was young I’ve enjoyed writing poems and being able to intertwine my life story into the works I’ve written. But in reference to my future career, writing continues to be my passion, but people have become my purpose. That’s why, with my English Communication-Arts degree, I will be able to accomplish my goal of bridging communication gaps between people across the world and across the country.
It wasn’t until recently that I discovered my career path in service. During my junior year of college I traveled for a week to Monte Sinai, Ecuador where I learned to be with and learn from the community. Ever since that transformative week I felt a strong calling to return and since I am now a senior at St. Mary’s University, I plan to do a post-graduate year of service with Rostro de Christo and return to Ecuador. My ultimate goal is to always have service embedded in every aspect throughout my life. I want to empower those who are unaware of the social injustices and widespread poverty occurring in third world countries and utilize the resources and tools we have here in the United States to forge cross-cultural relationships. People and service is my main focus and it’s something I’ve come to appreciate and love.
As my future awaits challenges and rich adventures, I’ve accomplished more than I could have hoped throughout my college career. I participated in an advertising boot-camp at an advertising agency, GSD&M in Austin, Texas, where three other students and myself had to create a full advertising campaign for Popeye’s chicken. I’ve also received published work in a literary magazine called the Pecan Grove Review where I’m currently interning, along with the English department on campus. To top it off, I also work at the University Police Department where I’ve learned to adapt to multiple personalities and attitudes.
As I near the end of my college career I can only hope to learn more skills, gain more experiences, and embark on more adventures. If there is anything I’ve learned it’s crucial to move forward in life no matter the obstacles that arise.
