Thank you for visiting my digital resume where you can see all my greatest achievements and accomplishments boiled down to a sentence. If you are interested in learning who I am as a flesh and blood, air breathing human, please continue reading!
I am a native of beautiful Southwest Michigan but have been living in West Tennessee for the last four years.
Ever since I can remember, I've always had this incredible zest for adventure, learning, change, new places, and warm weather. My Uncle lived in Tennessee and I thought, 'why not?' I decided to move from my very small, conservative, everyone knows everyone hometown when I was 21 years old, leaving everything and everyone I love behind.
My time in Tennessee allowed me to pursue my education at an internationally recognized, top-ranked Christian university. Attending Union University forced me to push myself creatively, academically and professionally. It has afforded me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and experience diversity first hand.
I have grown so much as a person in my short time in Tennessee, I have a hard time remembering who I was five years ago. What I do remember are the sacrifices my parents made that allowed me to partake on this life-changing journey; for which I will always be grateful.
Do not be mistaken: my time in Tennessee has not always been rainbows and butterflies. But I believe it has contributed greatly to who I have become.
I have experienced hardship, rejection, failure, disappointment, and the loss of two very influential people in my life; one too young and unexpected and one too soon but expected. I have discovered that in those times of hardship and pain, how we react and move forward, defines who we are and what we are capable of.
I have allowed those experiences, as terrible as they were, to shape me in such a way that I know I can overcome anything. I can take on any challenge and I will exceed all expectations. I have proven that in my current job as the youngest assignment editor WBBJ Channel 7 Eyewitness News has ever employed.
As thankful as I am for my time in Tennessee, I believe it is time for me to move on to bigger and better possibilities. I have made the decision to move back to my roots and back to my first love in Southwest Michigan and I am excited to discover what possibilities are in store for me.
I hope my words will give you the ability to clearly see and understand who I am as a person, not just a job applicant. I also hope the insight I've offered into who I really am will leave a lasting impression on you.
