“These difficult years have shaped me into the independent woman I am proud to be today.”


Turning 24 hit me like a ton of bricks – falling from a 20-story-building-covered in barbed wire. A little dramatic, I know.

Going from 4.0 honor roll student, Yearbook Editor-in-Chief, Youth Group founder to an involuntary college dropout takes quite a toll on your mental stability. But these difficult years have shaped me into the independent woman I am proud to be today.

BEING Young & Twenty is all about making mistakes and learning to love yourself.

Your 20’s are your selfish years, become your own biggest fan!

Loving yourself is the hardest but the most rewarding thing you can do in your life. It is incredibly difficult in this day and age, especially with all the social media flashing around you. But once you can accept who you are and be proud of the amazing person you have become, life will shine a little brighter.

Just remember:
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You”
– Dr. Seuss
