Hey Super Chicks!
My year on the core committee for GFAC was a timeI will never forget. It was a time of big changes in my life. I was a senior and wanted to get the heck out of Bozeman. I decided to go to the University of Montana in Missoula
In 2009, I was asked back to teach a workshop for the annual GFAC conference. I spent time talking openly with girls about what to expect when starting the new chapter in their life called, college. I felt it was a great way to prepare girls for the many things that go on in college. I gave insight for the good things, the bad things, and the ugly things that happen. I personally was there to be a part of the conference for the next three years; unfortunately I had time conflicts during the 2012 conference and was unable to attend.
When I first started at the university, I was getting my BA in business. However, I soon found out that business was not my calling. After finding this out I spent a semester trying out different classes. In 2010, I had officially switched my major from business to communication studies with a focus in human relationships.
I then fell into a lull in my life. I became compliant. I stopped chasing what I really wanted. But with the help of remembering my time with GFAC I quickly gathered myself up and fought. In the fall of 2011, I started my certificate for entertainment management. I’ve always been a supporter of entertainment and why not get a job in something you enjoy? But even as I pursued the certificate I still didn’t know what I wanted to do after graduation. Sitting in my weekend seminar, yes I said weekend, James Yelich, a big name music agent for Paradigm, came to talk with us and asked us, “What are your passions/values?” and the kicker, “Who are you?” Throughout that weekend, I really thought about everything I held sacred. I then remembered one thing that always makes me happy.
August 2012, I start my internship with the YMCA, helping out with youth sports, in hopes of pursuing a career in the NFL. After two semesters I have my certificate finished and I only have one more semester until I can officially say I am a college graduate.
My advice to future GFACers and other SUPER CHICKS, do what you love and love what you do. Follow your passions wherever they take you. And remember, “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” My dreams, my future, scare the crap out of me. But knowing what I know from GFAC, I will succeed.
