Find your passion
I loved speaking to over 1500 people at the Jostens Renaissance National Conference in Orlando, FL about finding my passion. No matter what your passion is, don't stop until you find it. We are told that we need to be educated and then we’ll be successful. In reality, it’s the opposite. Our passion needs to push us forward and become the driver of our education.
THIS IS MY STORY
I graduated from LaSalle-Peru Township High School in 2018 and I'm currently a sophomore at Illinois Valley Community College (IVCC). At IVCC, I'm the Student Trustee, Admissions Department volunteer intern, Staff Writer for the IV Leader, and I've taken on the task of reviving the college's social media accounts. Although I'm undecided for a major, I'm currently interested in business and communication related fields.
Outside of school, I just started working at the Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development and I couldn't be more excited! In addition to creating videos, I also volunteer my time and serve as the Director of Online Media, Marketing Coordinator, and Information Technology Coordinator for The Perfectly Flawed Foundation. My hobbies include flying drones, learning about technology, and spending time with my family.
Also, my favorite company is Apple if you haven't noticed yet!
