It was an amazing year and one that I have learned so much from and grew a lot. Thanks to everyone who came along for the journey. Here’s what happened in the last year!

Honestly, I didn’t really know I did that much in the past year. This coming year is going to be remarkable. Going to be doing what I love and around the people I love, my family and friends. There is so much going on in my life now and I am thankful for everyone who is part of it. Happy New Year!
I am so impressed with the accomplishments of this college student.
