Hello Friends! yes, you read it correctly, I am going back to school! the word is out and I wanted to share this new journey with you guys. When life gives you new opportunities, you gotta step in and take them,
I am a costuming support specialist for Disney. They have a program “Aspire” dedicated for employees part-time or full-time that want to continue their education within their degree or selecting another one within their career. Even though I already have a degree in fashion design, I want to learn more about other skills.
If you are considering going back to school let me just say you are never too old to go back or it’s never too late. I have heard so many stories of people feeling ashamed or not feeling like they are good enough to go back. Why not? we never stop growing, we never stop learning.
Here are some good points on why going back to school is important:
In the industry that I’m in, there is something new every day. Not only I am able to grow at work but apply what I’m learning in school. There are so many opportunities within and outside of my workplace that I can create and go to school will help me to gain more knowledge and insight. Knowledge is power, my friends!
Expanding Your Mind
Learning something expands your mind. The more we can learn, the more we can have conversations with other people, we can relate to others, we meet new worlds and new places we never knew. Growing your mind is important, no matter what you do, take the time to learn something new every day
I believe that as women we can have it both. The brains and the looks, for me personally reading a book, learning something new really helps me to feel confident about myself. To feel more secure when I step into a room and can carry a conversation about anything. It gives me strength and self-empowerment.
Leaving a Legacy
I am trying to make a difference in the world. There are a couple of projects that I want to achieve within the upcoming years, and it takes time, sacrifice, effort, and knowledge. I want my children in the future (don’t have any kids currently) to see how their mom created her own opportunities and used her resources well.
Doing it for myself
I don’t mean to sound selfish, but who will do things for you? no one. I am doing something that will benefit me along the way, if I take care of myself, people around me will benefit from me. I will never take any opportunity for granted, and I have a chance to go to school for free so why not do it.
So yes I am going to school for free! I am grateful that I work for one of the best companies in the world, & for this opportunity. It will be challenging balancing it all, but I enjoy learning, and it will pay off. Blogging and creating content will continue to happen, don’t worry 🙂
Today I encourage you, friends, to take any opportunity that goes your way. We live in a country full of resources, and we can do anything we want. If you are going back or starting a new career please share your process, your story on the comment box. I would love to hear more from you guys. Cheers to a successful week!
P.S: Enjoy a little illustration I made of myself <3
