EMILY’S BRAVE ADVENTURES

Moving to a new city is exciting – but equally as frightening. So many questions run through your head. Can I find my way around? Are the locals nice? Where am I going to live? What if I can’t find a Target?! Okay…that last one might just be me. But regardless of your specific concerns, it’s completely normal to be scared. Diving into the unknown is a daunting process. I would be more worried about you if you weren’t scared. But fear isn’t something you should let control you. Sometimes going beyond your comfort zone is beneficial. It can teach you more about yourself – who you are and what you want in life. I’ve officially been in Boston for over a month and I love it!

Of course I miss my family and friends; and it might be nice to drive somewhere without using a GPS – but it’s all part of the experience. The “YOLO” catch phrase is a little cliché…but it’s so true. You DO only live once – why not make the most of it? When opportunities present themselves, take them! Don’t let life pass you by.  More often than not, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more so than the ones you did. New situations can often push you to embrace your independence. I ate in public alone for the first time ever a few weeks ago. And no, it may not be ideal – but it gave me time to think. Doing things on my own no longer instills as much apprehension as it used to. I feel very comfortable exploring on my own – hey, I sometimes even prefer it! Now having met new friends, I no longer have to do everything alone – but it’s nice to know that I can.

I don’t want to look back on life when I’m seventy-five and wish I had done more. I want to be seventy-five with no regrets and plenty of stories to tell. Fear should never hold you back. Be brave and dive into the unknown. Take unexpected opportunities. Do something out of your comfort zone. Meet new people. Change your major.  Go skydiving. Just do something. Follow your passions and take advantage of life – I promise you won’t regret it.

BRAVE ADVENTURES
I’m new to the “blogging” world – so I feel like introductions are in order. My name is Emily and I’m currently the Social Media Intern at Keds.
I’m also a student at the University of Arkansas, majoring in Communication Disorders to become a speech language pathologist. Confused as to how a small town girl from Arkansas whose major has to do with speech, is now living in Boston for the summer working in social media? You have a right to be. It’s a long story – so bear with me.
Okay. I’m going to be 100% honest with you. I got into the Keds craze after I saw Taylor Swift rocking a pair a few years ago. But hey! She has fabulous style – can you blame me? So of course I ordered a few pairs….and maybe a few more. Then in September, I saw a post on Keds’ page looking for Brand Ambassadors to rep Keds on college campuses. I figured it would be the perfect fit for me, so of course I applied – having NO idea I would actually be chosen. And so my Keds “brave story” begins. Throughout the year I posted Keds pictures on social media and held events on campus. I even started my own fashion Instagram @musingsofglitter.
After being a Keds brand ambassador throughout the school year, I was sent information regarding their social media internship this summer. Again I applied…again not thinking I would be chosen (my major is communication disorders remember?)…but then I received the phone call. Of course I was thrilled! But panic quickly set in. Can I move to Boston for the summer? Where am I going to live? Can I even financially afford to do this? What if I don’t like my job? What if my co-workers don’t like me? The list goes on and on.  After joy, tears and endless talks with my family and friends, I decided it was an opportunity I simply could not turn down!  So here begins the journey. I packed up my car (well, that’s a lie…my VW bug broke down a few days before leaving) – so I packed up my mother’s car and made the 25 hour trek north (shout-out to my Dad for being the best road trip buddy!). And here I am! I can’t wait to share my weekly experiences with all of you! Diving into the unknown is terrifying…but often worth the risk. So I challenge you to join me this summer – be brave; be bold; and dare to follow your dreams.



I’m working for Keds this summer and blogging my experiences! Follow Keds to stay updated on my latest adventures!
