Before anyone ever cared where I would pursue my career, I was a kid from the Southeast. It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. Its where I made others cry. It’s where I bled. Sitting there in Arkansas, I was thinking this is really tough. I could feel that I was leaving a place I truly loved. The Northeast, for me, has been almost like graduate school for other young adults. These past few years helped raise me into who I am. I feel my calling here goes above a career choice. I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one, and I take that very seriously. In The Southeast, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.
I’m ready to accept the challenge. Atlanta, I’m coming home.
