A Note from the Author
Hey boos! If you are new here to my page, here’s a little insight to my life.
I am a recent graduate from The University of Texas at San Antonio where I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies to become an elementary school teacher! I made it all the way into student teaching where I realized God had other plans for me. He was not quiet about it either! So many blockades came in my way the second I started my clinical teaching.
One day in the fifth grade class I was teaching, I was reading a few books to see what the kids should read next. Then, it hit me like a bus. I realized I loved reading and writing and the only reason I wanted to teach was to spread that love… that PASSION. But I knew I was wasting my time with teaching and I walked out that day. I was so happy leaving that school and walking into my new life as a blogger, a writer, and so much more possibilities.
Thankfully, I had all my college credits in order, so I could still graduate and have a degree under my belt!
It was a rough transition going from having my whole life planned out as a teacher with stability…. to a blogger! I thought I was nuts to give all that up for the chance that I would be successful. But, I still, to this day, have persisted and pushed to achieve what the “impossible”.
Guys, listen up! 👀 I am super excited to announce I will be working with ROX Jewelry Shop @roxjewelryshop 😁 which is locally, women owned and operated by a Geologist in Austin, TX!! 👏 #BuyLocal!
They specialize in jewelry with high quality stones, gems, and crystals at a reasonable price! The BEST PART is they donate part of your purchase to the charity of YOUR CHOICE ❤ One of my favorites is, “A Moment of Magic Foundation” where children in hospitals from all over are visited by their favorite princess, super hero, etc. to help “kids just be kids” in the midst of their illness. Most of us with Scoliosis can relate to this due to our many surgeries, braces, procedures, etc. I basically lived in the doctor’s office as a kid. It was dull, sad, and it made me have grow up fast. Remember those feelings? Imagine if Moana burst through the hospital door and became your BFF. Wouldn’t that have made it a little easier?
