ROARIN' Twenties

The time to mold your future is now!

People seem to think that their lives begin when they are 30+ with a family and a stable job. However, what they fail to realize is that it takes your “Twenties” to get to where you want/need to be! Everyone needs to know that your “Twenties” are important and it is the time for everyone to start molding their future!  I will use my blog mainly to market young adults who are in their “Twenties” and help them promote their business, organization, idea or celebrate their success!! I WANT TO HEAR YOU ROAR!!  I will post a profile every two week about someone in their “Twenties” to help them gain more visibility and give them the recognition they deserve. I will be there to make announcements based upon their work and to attend any event they may be affiliated with. I will basically shadow them along the way as they work to better their future! Not only will I market/ talk about others and their success, but I will also post about myself and talk about life lessons I have learned, as I age through my "Twenties"!

 

OPPORTUNITY AWAITS!

Let me just start off and say, DON'T WAIT FOR OPPORTUNITY TO COME TO YOU, GO TAKE YOUR CHANCES!!!! So I am a business major and the LSU E.J. Ourso College of Business are always holding events. All types of companies come to our school just to look for new hires! So last week was Career Expo time, and because of this the college opened up for a mini expo for business students! Not gonna say which companies I talked to, but I have 2 interviews coming up!! Not only that, I got to sit in on a questionnaire/ meet and greet with the CEO of Deloitte ( tax company)! It was cool hearing his story and how he became CEO, because people don't realize that your life is in your hands!

You are the one that controls your future, nobody else! Some people get lucky when it comes to jobs/internships falling into place. However, we aren't all lucky, so go out there and get what YOU want!! First off, Networking is key! "MAJOR KEY!!" I strongly advise all college students to join clubs/ organizations. It's the easiest way to meet new people. I definitely feel like if I was not apart of Delta Sigma Pi (business frat), I probably wouldn't have made it to the expo. Just hearing them discuss about the upcoming events and seeing how well they are doing with their job search motivates me!

However, networking doesn't stop there!! START TALKING TO EVERYONE! Your hairdresser, your bus driver, your mail man, old bosses, etc. Literally EVERYONE! Make conversation and tell them your future plans, because they are actually listening!! Believe it or not, they are listening more then than your normal "supporters". That one conversation can lead you to a opportunity that you have probably been looking for your whole life!! 

SENIORITIS!

I have countless memories here at LSU. Memories going all the way back to the "Dirrrrty Herg" days! However, 3 years and 87 credits later, I am finally a SENIOR! I have been looking forward to this year ever since I started college. This journey was not easy. When I originally applied to LSU I wanted to be a Music Major for Vocal Performance. Then I was like " Naaaah, I really want to work in a Asylum". So I changed my major to Psychology. Why did I choose this? Who knows, because I don't even like to read and PSYC 2000 killed me my freshman year. (My first failing class.) Now I'm a Marketing major! It honestly took me a while to actually figure out what I wanted in life.

Even though I had declared a major I knew deep down I wanted to do something else. That there people is what college is all about, FINDING YOURSELF! Before you even go off to college, there will be so many people trying to tell you what direction to go. Especially people who don't even know you at all, but it's not about them. IT'S ABOUT YOU! Everyday I would research different types of jobs, or I would just sit down and have conversations with people to see what their plans are. I even took a test to help me decide what I wanted to. (It's the STRONG test btw, go to the career center.) Which was very helpful. It helped opened my eyes to jobs that I didn't even know existed. That's when I made my way to the E.J. Ourso College of Business.

I chose Marketing because its a very broad major. Marketing is used everywhere and it can be tied in with public relations, advertising, business planning, etc. I can really see myself on someones production team for a major company and I would really like to work for either a fashion, music, or pop culture type business/ company. This has been the goal for the past 2 years, but I have came up with tons of ideas along the way. So now is the time for me to actually put those ideas to work and aim towards the next step!!

In May 2017, I WILL be walking across that stage no matter what!! I have worked hard to get to where I am today and I will not stop till I finally find my rightful place in life. I strongly encourage each and everyone of you to always strive for better, and KEEP GOING! There was plenty of times where I wanted to just give up, but I couldn't do that to myself and my future.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

YAAAAAAAAS It's my 21st birthday! First off I would like to thank God for allowing me to see another year! Also I really appreciate my family and friends for helping me get this far in life! From Friday till today, it has been pretty eventful. Not only that, I got to spend it with majority of my loved ones! Here are some pictures from my wonderful weekend!

Okay enough of that....WELCOME TO MY BLOG! I have been waiting for this day for about 2 months! If you didn't read the description on the home page, this website will be used to market young adults who are in their “Twenties” and help them promote their business, organization, idea or celebrate their success! For a while now I have been trying to find ways to "market" myself. I wanted to do something special, something that I know can help people. I am a Marketing Major at Louisiana State University and I am preparing for graduation in May 2017, "WHOOOOP WHOOOOP! This blog is for marketing and promoting talented individuals in their "Twenties". The goal is to make this blog a recognizable media outlet for my peers. 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED ME WITH MY LAUNCH AND SHOWED SUPPORT!
