As a child my parents always thought I would one day be famous. I was one of those little girls who was always singing, dancing and talking to anyone and everyone who would listen. When I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer was always, "a writer." However, when I tried out for a show at Hinsdale Central's radio station my freshman year, I didn't really take it seriously. But as the only freshman (and one of the few girls)  given her own show, I quickly realized I had a talent for it. For four years I spoke to my very few listeners within a 5 mile radius, but I loved it. When it came time to choose a college major, I did not even hesitate: radio of course!
During my years at Illinois State University, I went through what most young people do, but what I like to call a quarter-life crisis. I quit the school radio station after two years and went in search of a new passion. I discovered it was one I had abandoned as a child; writing. Now, as 22 year old college graduate, working at my father's gas station, I hope to turn writing into my career. Like most young people  in this economy I am struggling. However, I am reaching my goals one step at a time, and I am confident that with hard work and plenty of patience I will get there. I currently live in Burr Ridge with my mom and sister. I spend most of my free time reading and hanging out with friends. When the weather is nice, I enjoy long bike rides at the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve. I'm a Blackhawks fan (Woohoo!), but don't try and get me to watch any other sport because I'll fall asleep. Which reminds of another one of my favorite pastimes; sleeping!
