It’s no secret that life as a freelance writer and editor is tough. A year and a half after working as a freelance Associate Editor for MTV and finding myself in the process of reclaiming my next career move, I am left reflecting on what got me here in the first place. I have always been a passionate and hardworking individual ready to work overtime, run to a media event for an exclusive A-list interview, and give my all to a task at hand. Even with all of my hard work, I have found myself reinventing what it means to be a creative young professional during the ugliest economic recession my generation has ever experienced.
Despite the struggle, I am keeping my dreams alive and learning how to survive in this industry no matter what! I have learned that my journey has been like painting a fresh canvas and I am not done with my masterpiece just yet. The process embodies struggle, strength, and resilience. I want to dedicate this blog to sharing my story with other passionate professionals, reflecting on my favorite moments as a freelance writer, and focusing on future endeavors. I’m excited to have you join me on this journey!
