There are times in a life where you sit down and really evaluate your life, who is in it, and where you should go from here. That has been happening to me for a while now. It started when I lost my grandfather and completely changed my view on life. I spent a long time after that on a spiraling roller coaster. I had some ups and some major downs. Essentially I was self-destructing. Hey it happens to the best of us.
Fast forward to having some health issues and then the decision of a career change. It took me a long time to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was already thirty when that time hit. I decided to go back to school and get a double B.A. in web development and marketing. I am proud to say that I am still working on that. Just this week I have received my first official paid client. I have also been working for Bit51 for a while and that has helped me to get to where I am now.
At thirty-something years of age I have the best support network I have ever had. They have helped me to open many doors. With the help of some wonderful people, at the end of the year I am launching a community resource website for children and teenagers who are dealing with bullying and/or depression. One aspect will be the “You Are Not Alone” page that will showcase real stories of real people who have been down that road. I want to have links to other resources and information that will help them down their road. I want the future movers and shakers to have all the information, knowledge, and support that they need and want to make it in any direction in their life. This is just me doing my part.
I hope to get enough stories and information to launch by the end of the year or at the very least the beginning of 2014. If you or someone you know would like to submit their story please contact me. We can change the names and make it completely anonymous for those who would like. If you feel that you can offer a product, service, or information to add to the site, please feel free to contact me as well.
Stay tuned for more information as the site is being built. I will post information as it comes along. I would like for the blog to grow to be much more but one step at a time. Thank you everyone for your continued support. You are why I can.
Empower our children to save the world not rule the world.
