My academic background has provided me with a strong understanding of the principles of patience, determination, hard-work and efficiency and this understanding is complemented by my ability to apply these skills in the workforce. My University career, where I was able to put my passions for Feminist and African-American issues, specifically in media-related and social/societal spaces into drafted, edited, academic papers and have them read, discussed and critiqued by peers, is a reigning example of how the application of these skills, accompanied by my positive attitude and continuing willingness to better myself as a writer and educated person of society contributed to my successes there.
My education has been truly enlightening in both an academic and personal sense. My struggles in terms of my academic career have taught me that education is a lot less about learning a subject in order to pass a test and a lot more about learning about yourself. My education has taught me specifically, that what I want to contribute to this world is educating people in the truth that your education has to fit you, and that you do not have to fit your education. We all learn and process information in a myriad of different ways, and once we find that space in which we flourish we realize that we are all brilliant and can contribute a great deal to the betterment of our world.
My interests in Fashion, African-American and Women’s issues is just the tip of the iceberg. I have a strong passion for finding the moral high-ground. The ethics surrounding equality for minorities is something I am very interested in, and I am ultimately looking for a career where I can apply all of these passions.
