Maybe it is because I am a Libra, symbolized by the scales, that I am constantly seeking to strike balance in my life. Then again, maybe this search is just the result of my being another ambitious worker bee in this demanding world. Regardless of the rhyme or reason behind it, I see my life as a constant Balancing Act.
I graduated from Bradley University in 2011, with a BA in Public Relations and minor in Business Management. Degree in hand, I moved down to Houston as a 6th grade English teacher through Teach For America. Next, I jetted off to Spain for a year as an English Teaching Assistant through Fulbright!
Now, I am back in Chicago putting my B.A. to use as an Account Manager at a boutique Public Relations agency. If my adventures have taught me anything, it’s that travel must be an inherent part of my life.
Life is ever-changing and fleeting. The mantra I live by is this: “Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile…initially scared me to death.” (Betty Bender).
