I got it! What a whirlwind of a month…

Grants Farm Commercial shoot

This has been quite a month for me! I am proud to say I was awarded the position as the new Fox Sports Midwest Girl. I am a little over a month into my newest adventure and I am absolutely loving it! I am able to talk with St. Louis and Midwest sports fans on a daily basis through social media, as well as, attend regional sporting and community events — this is AMAZING because I am getting to know people in the community while supporting worthwhile causes and organizations. I can definitely say, I am taking part in a once-and-a-lifetime opportunity.

The one bit of advice that I have taken away from this experience so far, for those in the media business or just in general, is: GO FOR IT! FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! I entered into a contest where over 200 people applied on the Fox Sports Midwest website, submitting a video audition (like mine in the post below). The field was then narrowed down to ten finalists after a series of interviews and was voted on by the public. Those odds are not exactly in anyone’s favor. I could’ve said, ‘Eh, there is no way I will get chosen out of ALL those people.’ But I didn’t, I had faith and went for it. I knew, deep down, this is what I wanted to do. So I went for it, with nothing to lose. If you have a chance at pursing something you dream of, do it! Or better yet, create your own opportunity!

Cheers to life’s opportunities and taking them by the horns!
