I don’t have much of a story, I’m only 18 years old and still have my whole life ahead of me. Currently, I am going into my freshman year of college and I am looking forward to every second of it. I work at a local government office and I also work in retail. I throw discus and shotput, play softball and am involved with music and theatre at my school. With all that I do, I like to not only emerge as a leader, but I like to be able to put everything I have into these activities and make as many connections as possible while doing what I love.

Throughout my short time here on Earth, I have tried to engage myself in any opportunity presented to me; the majority of these opportunities have involved music. When I was 3 years old I saw my first musical, and ever since then, music has been my first love. Music has always had this way of making me feel like I know everything but also know nothing at all. You can have every note, every breath, every word of a piece memorized, but change what key it’s in, and the entire piece shifts. Music has been a part of every known culture, varying between styles and period, it is the only thing that has remained a positive constant within eras. I find it entirely fascinating that I am a part of carrying this on as I continue making music.

When I was going into my sophomore year of high school, I started my own blog. It was something different and I loved that, many kids in my school didn’t know that I had one, and I was kind of embarrassed to tell people that I had a blog about my clothes. Over the last two years, I’ve used it more as an outlet for myself to feel positive about the way I look. This helped me whenever I need a boost of confidence or needed to relieve stress to be able to do something I love.

I want the things that I do to matter. I know that I still have my entire world ahead of me, but I can’t help but think, my future needs to start today, but there’s nothing I am really doing for it. I try and live every day to its fullest and make sure I get everything I can out of it.
