Beginner triathlete and cyclist, student, daughter, sister, dreamer, do-er, believer. These are me. As a 22 year old senior undergraduate student studying biological sciences at the University of Delaware, there is no more holding back. I'm about to get out and on my own, start a career, and push myself further toward my dreams. I tend to discover new things often, spontaneously form new ideas, and then go out and do them. The best part is, I'm never not having fun. While pushing hard toward a future with research in cell and molecular biology and eventually studying energy conservation at the molecular level in the environment, I am CONSTANTLY going to musical performances, racing bikes and triathlons, writing music, singing with friends in a band, and most importantly, always learning. I can't sit for long periods of time and am one of those people who's speakers you can hear from 2 miles down the road. I'm a little weird, but read my blog and take it to heart because one of my favorite things to do is make people smile.

My blog is directed toward young people as a tool to use while taking the journey into full responsibility. We simultaneously dive in to rough waters head first to find our niche in a functioning system and try to make sure never to let that system take over us or tell us that we are smaller than we can be. Through experience with my own ambitions I hope to be nothing less than an encouragement to yours. It's time to stop adhering to the easy way out that this lazy society embraces, but to choose to set goals, accept challenges, encourage others, and not depend on anything/anyone else to make you happy but yourself. Life can be as wonderful as you make it, even with a little physical pain sprinkled in here and there. Here, I share different aspects of my life, and hope to show young adults how to find what I found.

If everyone just say's "I can," once a day, it will make all the difference in sculpting you as an individual.
