When I was a senior in college, I came up with the bright idea of making our Black History Observance Month Celebration a little bit more than just another celebration. What started out as me deciding I wanted us to do something different for a change transformed into me finding my purpose….what I’m good at…what I ENJOY doing: Event Planning.
It was sort of intimidating to come to this realization….especially because I had just finished four years of a lot of math-intense classes, a lot of Sunday afternoons in the Electrical Engineering lab, and a lot of man-hours on a Capstone project. I couldn’t just turn completely around and give ALL of that up, could I?
Five years later, almost to the DAY, I am officially opening my Wedding, Proposal, and Event Planning business. Does it mean I want to completely give up on my engineering background? Not exactly. Does it mean that all I will do for the rest of my life is plan weddings? Not entirely. Does it mean that I am 10000% sure that I am where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to be doing, surrounded by the people that are supposed to be near me, at the perfect time for it all to take place? Absolutely!
