“Every job and experience helps you figure out what you really want to do.”


Growing up, I wanted to be a Disney Animator more than anything. After a few years of college as an art major, I was told that the classes that I had taken were all wrong and it would be another four plus years before I would graduate.

It made me really sit back and think about what I truly wanted to be. I decided to change my major to the one that would get me that magic piece of paper that says I’m smart (Sociology) and graduated a year later. From there, I spent the next several years bouncing around in different types of working, mainly secretarial and office jobs. I worked with a variety of different people and grew significantly as a person.

Right before I turned thirty, my career streamlined and I am now strictly in the photography industry. I know what area I want to work in for the rest of my life. When I read this interview on The Every Girl with Taylor Sterling, I was in love. It’s amazing how honest and inspiring this interview is for any woman that is running their own business and has ever been in their twenties.

    This is so true! We are so hard on ourselves sometimes (I know I am). I went through a similar change with my education and while I havn’t 100% decided what direction I’m headed in, I feel a lot less worried about it!
