Motivation

Once I realized that my life wasn’t going down the path I planned after graduation, I became uncomfortable, nervous, and afraid. For the majority of my life, I was able to choose my classes, friends, and extra-curricular activities. School gave me a false sense of “control” over everything. Job hunting after graduation popped that bubble real quick when I realized, the company has control over if I get hired or not.

One day I decided to get out of my funk and start thinking positive! I realized my fear of failing was preventing me from giving the world my all so instead of waiting for someone else to give me my “big journalism break”, I created my own platform, Don’t Die Afraid. My motto was, “Don’t deprive the universe of your amazing contributions because you died afraid.”
