If you can, please donate to my cause, any amount will help, add up, and get me to the college of my choice!

Realizing what you have always dreamed of becoming and making that step can be frightening at times. However, sitting down and putting off making that first step constantly will get you nowhere. Listen to your inner self deep within and make the necessary baby steps to start the process.
I have always loved PR & Events growing up as a child and would spend majority of my time planning and organizing family events (even for dining on a Sunday evening with the family), school events, club meetings & events, class outings. During my university years I jumped at every chance I got to part-take in planning events from the start straight through to the end. Watching the faces of our targeted audience go up in awe and creating that huge WOW is what makes this venture an amazing experience and a continuous one.
The key to being successful is believing in yourself and taking “NO” out your vocabulary. Tell yourself that you can do this no matter how hard of a task that may present itself. Never be afraid of failing. If something fails or did not go the way you have planned, dust it off and use that as a stepping stone for the next event/task ahead. Look at why that aspect did not work and the circumstances surrounding that aspect whether it was the concept that it was used in, the avenue or medium used to bring forth the message or brand or even the manner in which it was used.
Whenever one door closes there is always another one to be opened. A door closing now is only making room for a better door to be open with greater benefits to be reaped.
Surround yourself with family and friends who are supportive and will guide you in a positive direction. Take criticism as they come, which maybe good or bad, but these are what makes us stronger and provides us with a smarter and more creative tomorrow. Never be afraid to ask questions, what you do with the answers is the key.

I am firm believer in going after ones dream and continuous belief in ones self. No is not apart of my book. Today is the start for a brighter tomorrow. Never be afraid to fail or make a mistake. Instead analyze the error and seek the best options available to improve on this for your next task.

According to an article in USAToday, women are on the verge of outnumbering men in the workforce for the first time, a historic reversal caused by long-term changes in women's roles and massive job losses for men during this recession.
Do you think this reversal will have a negative impact on women's health, if so, how? How will the relationship between a man and woman, a husband and wife be affected by this workforce reversal?
