My dream job. Where do I even begin. All my life I wanted to be a teacher. But also during this lifetime I always have had a love for writing and drawing or shall we just call it, the arts.
When I was growing up, I was that little girl who would help the teacher at the end of the school year and take home all of those unused dittos and ‘play’ school with them over the summer pretending to be the teacher. I also started to be around children a lot and take care of them at the age of 12. From that point on, I had many teachers have a huge impact on me and made me realize that this is what I wanted to do. I also during this time, was an art major in high school and also enrolled in an early enrollment writing class my senior year. I knew at an early age what my loves were~writing, teaching and art. I created many beautiful pieces throughout these years, which I now have hanging in my house, and I created a children’s book.
Now flashback to senior year in the year of 1996-1997, and for any of you who were around at this time, know that there weren’t many options like there are today if you were going to college. Girls either became teachers if they went to school or something to do with children, or you went into a field of Business or Communications. There was no social media, marketing wasn’t really pushed as much as it is today and basically anything having to do with computers was more in the IT field rather than the possibilities being endless like they are today. So naturally I applied to a state college, against my will, and lived at school to become a teacher. I don’t regret the decision. I made wonderful friends, whom I am like sisters with til this day, and I had some of the best experiences ever. However, I always felt like I should be doing something else.
Eleven years later, I am a teacher. I love what I do and I am very good at it. But I still feel like something is missing. I have a knack for organizing events and project managing but I also know I have a talent for writing. Being given the opportunity three years ago to start my own blog, has opened many doors for me and I couldn’t be any more grateful than I already am.
So without further ado, here are my dream jobs:
To become a professional blogger for a magazine.
To work in the fashion industry.
To become a children’s author.
Lucky for me, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do some of these things on the side, and my career as a teacher has allowed me to have the time to be able to do these things.
Currently as this moment, I have this fabulous blog thanks to Glamour Magazine for choosing me three years ago to be a Glambassador for my home state, I work for StyleWeek Northeast as the Director of Operations and remember that children’s book that I wrote in high school, I am in the process of editing it and I will be sending it off to be published this year.
Every day I put out positive thoughts and vibes that one day, my dream jobs will become a reality.
What would be your dream job?
