What I have accomplished in 2018

Another year has gone by and I am so close to graduating college. I am looking forward to what life has to offer me, but I want to quickly talk about some of the things that I have accomplished in 2018. I am not usually one to get all corny about goals and resolutions, but I can honestly that 2018 started off really rough for me, but I am so glad it is ending on a good note. Some key accomplishments include: my mental health, school, and my personal brand.

Mental Health

Not many people think of mental health as a goal, but just like any other goal, you need there is always room for improvement. For me, I have dealt with anxiety, specifically OCD for a little over 2 years and I can say that the beginning of 2018 was bad on that part. I was finally able to get better help and stabilize my anxious thoughts. Obviously, OCD isn’t something that will go away; it actually doesn’t have a cure, but there are treatments that can help you live life with more ease.

School

Well, it’s almost a wrap! Still can’t believe I’m graduating Rutgers University in May 2019. It’s a bittersweet moment because although I am so excited to be done with school, I’ll have to focus on getting a real job now. I have been working so hard this past fall semester, trying to get my GPA up and although my GPA is not where I want it to be, I know that I will keep trying hard even in the Spring semester. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to get an internship this past summer at a small PR firm called LaRue PR, where I got to learn the basic of Public Relations. When I was at my internship I was able to gain skills on creating media lists, using different platforms such as MuckRack and Cision Point. I also had the chance to create product pitches for back to school and summer essentials.

Personal Brand

I never thought in a million years I would ever have a blog and be able to grow my Instagram account this fast! I had made a new account back in November and I grew over 500+ followers within one and a half months! I am still shocked by how much I was able to grow my engagement and following. I have learned so much about the details that need to be put into creating content that will get a lot of attention and catch people’s eyes. I wish to continue to grow my personal brand and potentially work with big brands in the future.
