Happy New Year loves! I took some time out to really sit down and think what I want to do going forward with not only my blog but also my brand. As most of you may know, I am currently a college student majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. After graduating, I don't have a set plan but I do know that I want to work with Social Media because this is a place where I speak my mind to not only people that I know but across the world. It amazes me how people from other parts of the country follow me and ask me for advice. I just want to grow my audience because blogging and Youtube is something that I love to do and it also gives me the experience to show a company that they can trust me with having their brand in my hands.
Looking back into 2016, I have accomplished some things that I am extremely proud of. At the end of the Winter 2016 semester, I held a 3.3 GPA (Cul.) and a 3.7 semester GPA. I participated in my first internship with Blk + Blu Online while also working at the largest Macy's department store in the world (Herald's Square - NYC). I am currently a Residence Assistant for my school, which is a position I have been praying to get. As far as my brand, I did start my blog and youtube channel which was something that was so scary for me because I was always thinking what would people think of me. But I realized that this is something that you just have to do. Stop thinking about what other people would think about you and do what you love to do. Beauty, Skincare, Fashion & Lifestyle, that's me. The girl on snapchat with her bonnet, that's me. I want to come across as me unapologetically while also taking you guys along the college journey to show you the work that goes along with it. I want to be an inspiration to girls [young black girls in particular] who may think that they don't have a voice in today's media because you only see the mainstream Caucasian youtubers. While they are still amazing, REPRESENTATION MATTERS. I want to be that relatable person that you can ask questions to about college, beauty, skincare, etc. or even life in general. That is what I plan to do with my brand.
Going forward in 2017, I have set some goals in place. Regardless of my hectic schedule, I want to post on my blog and my Youtube channel as frequently as possible. Once I get back to school, I will create a schedule that would work with my classes and work schedule. I also want to participate in another internship. I have applied to some in the North Jersey, NYC area so keep my applications in your prayers! A 3.5+ GPA IS A MUST FOR ME BY THE END OF 2017. Finally, I want to plan two events by the end of 2017 that not only gives back to my community but showcases my brand and what I can do. Of course I will have monthly and quarterly goals but for the most part, these are my main focuses for the year of 2017 & I'm ready to knock them out of the water. Thank you for keeping up with me and following my journey & I wish you the best in the new year!
Sincerely, Sharon B
