2011 started with a bang and so many things have happened this year that I could have never imagined or planned better myself.
All of the things I’ve experiences in 2011 from ups, downs, highs, lows, achievements, disappointments, happiness, worry, doubt, optimism, it all has made me grow.
And this blog is a good reflection of almost all of 2011 from my voice, my heart, my life..and this post is a reflection of 2011. It’s not everything but the major moments of my life from January 2011 to December 2011, 365 days, 52 weeks, and 12 months of growing, maturing and figuring out my next steps.
The big storm that hit Raleigh and devastated Shaw University — this was one of the best stories I ever did with Carolina Week because I actually covered news story that was a local and national issue and a story that impacted not just the Chapel Hill community but Raleigh community too. It reminded me that this is my job, to tell those stories that aren’t always told.
Sunday, May 8, 2011 — My highly anticipated graduation from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill WITH a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication with a minor in American History and concentration in Spanish for the Professions — say that five times fast!
And who could forget my SENIOR pictures taken by the lovely Lauren Cowart! Love, love, love all the shots we took and all the locations — because each one represented a certain part of my college career!
Getting my FIRST JOB after graduation in Washington, D.C. and working full time and moving into my first apartment in Silver Spring, Maryland — I’m in the real world yall!
Well, that’s my life in 2011, a year that flew by faster than I could have ever expected and I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for me.
God bless, peace and love.
Until next time (and next year),
