San Francisco journey

The last couple of weeks since graduation have been crazy.  I decided to take a leap of faith, pack my bags and start my next chapter in San Francisco! I’m embarking on this journey with full faith knowing that SF is a city that holds opportunities for me to pursue my career passions. 


I have come realize that being over the uncertainty of what the future holds is a waste of precious time. Not knowing what the future will bring can be the most frightening thing ever. Moving to a city and not knowing anyone can set you off from your groove. In some weird way, being completely out of my comfort zone has given me a larger perspective on life.

I am a firm believer that no matter what you are passionate about in life you can be successful.. While moments of anxiety and stress can be depleting, they can actually mature you to be a better version of yourself. 


The goals that we have set for ourselves will always be intact. It is the power that we have within us to stay

” mindful and grateful for the opportunities and the lessons we learn on the way. “

We are the gatekeepers to our own success. It is our duty to let go of our insecurities and see our confident side. Rather than seeing what we don’t have, let’s envision what we do have and stay blessed in our lives.
