  • My Leap -
    I took a risk. I left Kentucky and moved to Chicago to attend the Chicago Portfolio School! This will hopefully change the path of my career for the better. I plan to share my journey on my way to a better future.

    My Dad sent me a book in the mail titled GO FOR IT! A Celebration of Your Dreams! With a little note saying "I saw this and thought you would like it."

    I have been in Chicago now since July. For me, this is a long time to have been away from home. From what was so familiar and comfortable. I knew this journey wasn't going to be easy but I decided to take it and couldn't be happier. I want to share a page out of this book that reminds me that life is a journey and this is exactly where I am suppose to be. Because I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

    "As you journey through life, choose your destination wisely, but don't hurry there. You will arrive soon enough. Wander the back roads, the forgotten paths, the unknown ways, as you keep your dreams in your heart as the light that guides you.

    Seek out new voices, strange sights, and bold ideas.
    Such things are riches for the soul.

    And if, upon arrival, you find that your destination is not exactly what you dreamed it would be, don't be disappointed. Think of all you would have missed if not for the journey there, and know that the true worth of your travels lies not just in where you've come to be, but who you became along the way." -LINDA STATEN- GO FOR IT!
