Just a little bit about me… I graduated from Duquesne University, a private, Catholic university in Downtown Pittsburgh in May of 2013. I’m a Leo, and for those of you who are into astrology that should tell you A LOT about me (minus the cocky-over confident part because that’s definitely not me). Like many recent graduates, I found it very hard to jump into a career and start making a living after graduation. I majored in International Relations because I am intrigued by other languages and cultures, but as I approached graduation, working for the government became less and less appealing to me. I was truly stuck. I fell into a deep state of depression soon after graduation. I thought I had it all figured out, but life had other plans. I made irresponsible decisions, I racked up debt, student loans started coming in, and I was gaining an astronomical amount of weight! I couldn’t stand to look at myself anymore because I was so embarrassed at what my life looked like. It was only when I stopped feeling sorry for myself, prayed to God, and became more proactive that things truly began to change. I stopped looking at what I didn’t have and started being grateful for all that I had accomplished up to that point. In fall 2014, I started working on a cruise ship in Hawaii, and that experience changed my life. It was the best decision I could have made during that time. That ship life experience, which you can read about below, led me to who I am today.
