So… let me tell you guys about my day. Seldom am I personal on here, but today… has been one of the best days of my life. I mean seriously — from waking up → right now.
First off — shout out to the prettiest gals in the world, the Gamma Rho Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (Jackson State University; Jackson, MS) — April 24, 1949 our gorgeous chapter was born. Skeeee – Wee! Love all of my sisters ♥
So, just like any other morning this week, and on last week, I got up, got dressed, got my 1st dose of coffee, and headed off to school to finish editing THE dopest art piece for one of my colleagues. (BTW, he just texted me with awesome words and filled me in on the reaction amongst his cohorts in his screening tonight — two thumbs up:)
Today, I also had a really big marketing business plan presentation to present and I had lots of fun doing it! Got a hand clap and a great response from my professor and classmates. During that 30 minutes, I knew FOR SURE that I wanted a career in Entertainment PR, Marketing and Distribution.
But something amazing happened. Something that makes this day so much better… Today, I got an email offering me an internship with a New York based Entertainment PR, Marketing, and Branding Company. I almost cried! No seriously, I almost cried. I wanted it so bad, and God had answered my prayers. I rejoiced and texted only a few people (family & close friends). And at that moment, as I TRIED to maintain my composure, it seemed almost too good to be true. I continued to re-read the email over and over, and over again, lol.
This marks a very, very interesting chapter in my life and I am so excited, I wanted you all to know :) My dreams have been coming true for the last couple of years — so NEVER think that it’s not possible. EVER.
And to think that one of my recent, most random Facebook statuses reads, “ahh… I’m excited for my future! Through blessings and blessings to come, anything is possible :)”
So I will close with what my God mother told me today, “Look out New York, Charli is on her way to the Big Times!”
Thank you mom and dad. You have been my #1 supporters since birth. You remember the years… gymnastics, cheerleading, ballet/tap/jazz, track, basketball, all the summer camps, sitting front and center at all of my award ceremonies, being a walking ATM machine… that LONG drive to Washington, DC to drop me and my things off… I will never be able to thank you enough. And as you two always say, “PTL”. I LOVE You.
