In 2018, Sarah Jakes Roberts' posted an opportunity to intern for her brand, Woman Evolve. I was so excited to see where a new internship opportunity as a writer for her brand would take me. I'm a dreamer and feel as though nothing has the power to stop me from the things I want in life except for myself, so I auditioned. I like how God has given me the confidence to audition for things even when I may be a little nervous. One thing I can say is I have never let my nerves stop me from pushing myself into audition mode. After emailing a sample of my writing to the Woman Evolve team I received an email saying that I made it to stage 2 of the audition process! I was ecstatic, and made sure to send in my next piece of writing promptly. I did not receive the opportunity, however this showed me how valued my writing truly is. To be chosen among so many others for my writing skills as a finalist on a national platform meant the world to me. It put me on cloud 9 and confirmed that I am doing something right. If Sarah was to read this post I would want her to know that I appreciate her considering little ole me to be apart of something as dynamic as her Woman Evolve brand. Much love and respect.
This is where I share moments of accomplishment. No matter if I win or lose, the victory is in me actually getting up and trying and then dusting myself off to go back out in the world and try again.
