I've always excelled academically! I struggled a lot with self-esteem & self-confidence issues, so school & academics was an opportunity for me to shine and focus on things that made me curious. In both Elementary & Middle School, I graduated at the top of my class.
Graduated from Burke High School
I graduated valedictorian from Burke High School in Charleston, South Carolina, with over a 4.6 GPA & over $700,000 in scholarship offers from colleges & universities around the country.
Graduated from Susquehanna University
I received a full scholarship from Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, PA, and started in August of 2010. Once again, my academic strength and ambition shined bright there as well, leading me to graduate a year and a half early with my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Communications.
Areas of Passion
My life has allowed me the pleasure of learning a number of things and becoming very good at them to the point that I'm able to help others. Below are some of the areas I'm most passionate about.
Public speaking is a skill that I've grown to love over the years. It's allowed me to come out of my comfort zone and experience my areas of passion in different ways. If you'd like to book me to speak on any of the areas you see here, feel free to email me directly at [email protected]
Small Business Support
I've learned so much on my journey the past 7 years as an entrepreneur. Through my brand, I am able to be for other entrepreneurs, what I wish I had more guidance. Guidance on decision making, developing their business, and how to seek balance are so essential to a new business owner. It's a real driving force of influence.
Branding & Marketing
I never knew anything about branding and marketing before starting a business. I don't have a formal education, but my experiences encouraged me to learn more and help others. The biggest mistake we make is assuming they are interchangeable when they really go hand in hand in a unique way.
Self Esteem & Self Confidence
Self-esteem & self-confidence are two topics that I never really was taught or introduced. It was recognizing my own lack of both of them that influenced me to learn more. After working through my own troubles with these issues, I saw how much people are affected by them on a daily basis. It's a duty for me to be able to speak on these issues and help people in building these within themselves.
