In many ways, 23 was a bittersweet year for me. Many life changes and amazing career opportunities coupled with personal growth and challenges. Looking back it is always interesting to see what really matters at the end of it all and what moments made an impact on me. If I could assign a motto to live by as my new 24 yr old self it would be to “be brave”. Show courage and step into the unknown bravely and confidently knowing that god is on my side with the many people I love. Be brave and jump head first into the deep end trusting that I can swim. Be brave and stand with strength when my career screams rejection. Be brave.
