I must say this past month has gone by extremely fast! There have been two exciting things that have happened since I last updated you all. First, after a long process, I have received an internship with Crimson Tide Productions. This is a dream come true! I have already started the internship and love it! I will be covering University of Alabama Athletics and working side by side with the new SEC Network this upcoming Fall! Secondly, I received amazing news last week that I have been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Pearle and Julius Talton Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to one student at the Capstone each year that is majoring in something within the College of Communications and Information Sciences. This means so much to me and I am beyond honored!
I recently had the opportunity to shoot with world-renowned photographer, Fadil Berisha. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to shoot with Fadil! Two weeks ago he came to Birmingham and I got to work with his incredible team. It was such an amazing experience!
This week is my Spring Break! Tomorrow I will be flying out of Birmingham and headed to visit where I will be spending most of my summer, Texas! I cannot wait to visit the station I will be interning with this summer! I will be headed back to sweet home Alabama later this week and will spend the rest of my break relaxing with my family.
My symptoms from surgery are almost all gone! The only symptom I still have now is occasionally disturbed vision. Of course, this will be the last symptom to go but it is still much better than before surgery. I have noticed that the disturbed vision usually occurs after focusing on a computer/phone screen for a long time or while driving. No headaches, no brain pressure, no weakness!!! I cannot help but sit back sometimes and reflect on where I was eight months ago. I am forever grateful for this entire journey and all of the lessons I have learned along the way. Sometimes God gives us the steepest valleys, to be reminded that there is nothing we cannot accomplish without Him by our side.
Little reminder to anyone reading the blog with similar symptoms: please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Had a blast watching Alabama defeat Auburn in Basketball with my Dad earlier this month!
Loving my new job at Crimson Tide Productions!
Fadil Berisha and I!

Dreams don’t work unless you do!
Nothing beats a sunny afternoon with sweet friends!
