January 2017: A Month In Review

blog-post-january-2017

 

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe that January is already coming to an end. I feel like this year will go just as fast as 2017. I wanted to give an update on how the first month of 2017 has treated me.

Spiritual Growth:

Every year my New Years Resolution is to grow closer to God. However, I feel as though this year I have made the most progress with that goal. I have learned to pray more often, become more in tune with God’s voice, read my bible daily, and just bask in his presence. I pray that my growth only continues to flourish in this area.

Academic/Career:

Although it may seem small and insignificant now, I feel as though I have made strides towards my career. I have applied for countless internship opportunities. With this in mind, I am currently waiting and praying that God leads me to the write one. Meanwhile, I have been learning how to balance my academics (a heavier workload) and my extracurriculars. Which leads me to my next point:

Extracurriculars:

I have some exciting news to share. I have had a new publication that I write for. I am proud to say that I now write for an online campus magazine called “Her Campus.” I don’t take this opportunity lightly. I hope that I will be able to add clips to my portfolio and grow from this experience. Continually, I am also trying to get more involved with my campus news website and black organizations.

Welp, that is all that I have for today. I hope that I was able to give you some insight on some of the things that have been going on in for me this January. If you have any comments or questions please be sure to let me know in the contact comments.

Stay Blessed,
