Why I Started The High School Digest
- Trust Yourself
- Break Some Rules
- Don’t Be Afraid to Fail
- Work Like Hell
- Give Something Back
I was in my college dorm room thinking about making a personal website as a way to be different in the sea of medical school applicants, but to me, I wanted it to be more. Something more than just an online resume. So I thought to myself, “a blogging website?” “Nooooooo…” But then, I began to think about a website where I can help high school students be successful in high school, college, and beyond.
I have always liked the idea of becoming a role-model, being my own boss, and making my own schedule. And this idea of The High School Digest seemed to be the way there.
I continue to blog every week, as well as, go to UCF to major in Integrated Business, and I work a part-time job at Publix (honestly, the best place to work if you are a young adult looking for a career).
I know I stated previously how I was planning to go to medical school, but the love I have for becoming an entrepreneur and the hatred I have for more school made me want to change majors into business (Go for what you are passionate for and then learn how to make money doing it).
From doing research and talking to other bloggers, a lot of activity on a website where you build a firm grip on your target audience begins to occur at some point after six months. So it may be six months, it may be more, but persistence is key as I am told.
I hope through this website I can build a career and open the door to more opportunities. I really want to help the youth in choosing a direction and succeed in life. I think of two lessons as I write this and they are: keep moving forward, and always seek for mentors.
I want to be that mentor for everyone and I will keep pushing forward until I get where I want to be in life. My own boss, a free person, a caring person, and an inspiration.
