Writer

I am selfish and self centered.  But I am curious, does anyone read my blog posts?

I love to write but don’t write often enough. Writers write, so that is why I have undertaken the task of contributing to this blog. Really I should not care what others think, but I totally wondered, is anyone out there in the Fontbonne world reading my blog?

I want to write topics that others can relate to, I want to be helpful, I want to share the Fontbonne experience with you all.

If you are out there and would like for me to blog about a certain topic. Let me know, I would be happy to oblige. A little bit about myself. I am in the Masters program for Theatre Education.  I have my undergrad in Theatre and Communications from Fontbonne. I am recently engaged and work as the House Manager for Mustard Seed Theatre. I like running and yoga and I am a cat owner. I believe God has a plan for each and everyone of us and by taking the right action we live out God’s will for us.

Anyone else out there enjoy theatre?  If so, what are so of your favorite plays? Or do you have any St. Louis venues you love to go see productions at?

Anything else you would like to know?  ASK ME!

What do you want to be when you grow up? What is your ultimate goal after graduation? How does Fontbonne help you fulfill it?

It’s amazing how when you’re a kid your imagination runs wild and free. As a kid, you come up with all of these ideas of what you want to be: veterinarian because you love animals, Astronaut because you want to be the first girl in your family to walk on the moon, a doctor because you want to heal the sick. All of these are great career opportunities, but as you grow older something happens to that imagination that used to be wild and free. You start to think that your childhood goals are unrealistic. After a long road of soul searching I’ve figured out one of the things I’m good at. I can tell a really good story. I’ve become inspired to put pen to paper and allow that childlike imagination to take control again.

When I grow up I want to be a writer. After graduation, I hope to work on completing my personal experience (memoir) as an officer with Transportation Security Administration. The University has put me in contact with some professors that I know can help me with perfecting my craft. I have at least one professor interested in my story.

So, there’s this song by The Pussycat Dolls that I love! As soon as I hear the opening chords, I’m up dancing, preparing to sing along. It’s called “When I Grow Up!” As someone who finds inspiration in almost anything, this song made me think of myself the first time I heard it. What do I want to be when I grow up?

Anyone, that knows me well, knows the answer to this question. “Ebony wants to be a writer,” any of my friends would tell you. And they’d be correct! I want to support myself through my writing. To be on the New York Times bestseller list would be divine! I also want to be a creative consultant, using my artistic nature to help others achieve their dreams.

When I graduate with my degree in Business Administration, I will use the knowledge and skills obtained at Fontbonne University, to start a consulting firm. At the same time, I plan to continue my studies and obtain a degree in English, as well.

With both degrees, I will achieve my goal of becoming a successful consulting firm owner and published author. Fontbonne is going to be with me every step of the way!

What do you want to be when you grow up? I know Fontbonne University can help you get there!
