I performed in shows throughout high school, participated in public speaking competitions, and continued pursuing my love of storytelling. After graduating high school, I was determined to serve an LDS mission, where I honed my communication skills and shared my story of Jesus Christ. During my mission, I met scores of people with incredible stories; however, some of those people were afraid to speak, just like I was. But I discovered that people can draw strength from the experiences of others.
I remembered what it was like to live in a world of silence; I wanted to be the voice for those who were afraid to speak.
After returning home from my mission, journalism unexpectedly slipped into my mind as a possible career. Being a part of broadcasting, traditional news writing, and public relations became my new goal. I knew the world of communications was where I needed to be.
