This is always one of those great questions that you find yourself confused when you are the one being asked, Who are you? Or “Tell me about yourself?” You know who you are but you just can’t seem to find the words to express it outside of your mind. Who am I? I am me! I am Andre’a! I am kind, loving and caring to anyone I may have the pleasure to cross paths with. I am a mother to two amazing sons. I am a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a niece, a friend! But I am more than just that. I am somebody!
I am somebody who has a good head on my shoulders and a loving heart pumping inside of me. I have a plan to become better than I was yesterday, every day. I have goals, dreams and aspirations! It took me some time to realize where I really want to be as far as my career, but It doesn’t matter when you start, what matters is that you start. Once I graduated high school I taught at a before and after school program with children in the elementary school. After that I made the decision that I wanted to be a teacher so I taught as a preschool teacher for years to follow. While I love children and the teaching profession , as I grew older I realized that my career goals were much different. I then went back to school and received my degree in criminal justice. I am a firm believer that you should never settle, and go after the things you want in life. So here I go again and I say to myself, “While I love the criminal justice field, this is not for me either, I want to get into the business/ human service field.” I know two different directions. Well when you have a mind such as mine you figure out how to bring the two together.
I just want to help people who are just like me all around the world while accomplishing the goals I set for myself. So currently, that is where I am. I am learning and planning every single day! My dream is to eventually put myself into a situation where I can help everyone around me, around the world. And it all starts with just one idea. An idea that will become a plan, a plan that will become Action. Everyday I am working, I am planning so I can show the world what I am capable of, my idea, my plan.
In three words how would I describe myself? The first three words that come to mind are: Ambitious, Optimistic, Thoughtful. Ambitious because there is nothing more that I want to do than to make myself proud of me, follow my heart, follow my dreams. Once I accomplish my dreams, my goals I can be the best me for everyone else. Optimistic because I see my glass as half full instead of half empty. I believe in myself and believe that anything is possible if you work hard towards a better tomorrow. Thoughtful because I show consideration for others, whatever that may be. It could be love, attention, a listening ear, helping etc.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me! Follow me so you can be apart of my journey, learn more about me, see where I am going, and see what I am about. Feel free to leave a comment or message me direct on my contact page. Be blessed and stay positive!
*As I always say… These are just my thoughts! Because I am… Just me, MsDraya!
