OPT Expectations vs Reality - Part 2


Whenever you're unsure of what to do next, build on whatever job or assignment that was before you, before your uncertainty.

As promised in previous post on my OPT experience, here is the

part 2.

I've found a new love for New York, and I'm forever grateful to be living in such a great city.



During my trip home, I spent a lot of time with myself and my family; got some great advice and much needed fuel to want to thrive again.

I came back knowing God was going to show up, but I honestly didn't expect Him to actually blow mind the way He has.

So I came in search of a new job, waiting for an admission letter into the Bachelor's Program at FIT (didn't know if I'd been accepted or not lmao), and NY weather wasn't helping.

With the time I had on my hands I decided to put a lot of work into my blog creating content and journaling like crazy; which has actually opened so many doors. Also working on my clothing line TENEWAA (not forgotten lol).


I've decided to forget what was gone, appreciate and build what still remained and look forward to what was next


I've decided to forget what was gone, appreciate and build what still remained and look forward to what was next. I think it's amazing how in choosing to build the one thing I put the least energy into mainly (because I wallowed my fears and insecurities) a while back, in such a short period, has opened me up to so many opportunities.



To cut the long story short I currently have a really great job assisting an amazing female designer (you may or may not know) with her women's wear clothing line, I got into the BFA program at FIT, and my blog is doing well. Working hard on TENEWAA as well.


My Lesson from this:

Whenever you're unsure of what to do next, build on whatever job or assignment that was before you, before your uncertainty and don't be afraid to take a leap of faith no matter how small that jump is - that's when there's elevation or movement into a direction of the next level of your life.


Extremely anxious and excited, but patiently waiting for what tomorrow holds for me.
