“Please, tell me about yourself.”
“I’m Sarita, a fourth-year business student at CSUF. I was studying Accounting, and I even had an internship with a top 4 accounting firm, but I quit it. Now I’m going to study Human Recourses and stay in school an extra year so I’ll have enough time to gain experience before I graduate. Employers are nicer to students, so I want to leverage that for as long as possible.”
My entire young adult life I firmly believed that sound bite was all I was worth.
This year I had no energy to keep up with it. That identity began to diminish. I thought I was dying.
But, I was not dying, I was making room for myself.
It was in those moments.
With the flowers
And the music,
That my heart beat strong.
“Please, tell me about yourself.
“I am growing.”
