Sunday Night Thoughts

Growing up I was always the shy girl. I never raised my hand in class and avoided attention at all costs. I was comfortable being lost in the background and was always afraid of putting myself out there. In school and at home I was always known as "the nice girl." I would go out of my way to put other people first always leaving myself on the back burner. When I was 18 I packed up my entire life and moved to Arizona to start a new chapter at ASU. I pushed myself to get out of my comfort zone, meet new people, try new things, and get involved. Over the years I met some truly amazing people along with some very controlling (girls and guys) people. Once I graduated college and began my career in teaching, I realized that I had never given myself the chance to find out who I really am. The recent year has been filled with more ups and downs in my career and personal life than I have ever experienced. I started thinking of a way that I could show my true self and gain some self-identity...Then Girl Talk and Glamour was born. Now as a 23 year old, I am afraid of being average. I want to be different and make a difference. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me.
