Hi I’m Jordan! I’m a junior elementary education major at THE University of South Carolina! I wear many hats in my busy life (some say too many hats), but I am excited to add blogger to my collection.
As women, we’re quick to run to our best friend, partner, or mom about our days, but how many of us honestly take 20-30 minutes each day to write or talk about something that is not what we do or something that happened, but simply something that we enjoy or are interested in? I’ll wait… okay there’s always that one person who is the exception to the rule, but most of us don’t do that. This is exactly why I wanted to start blogging.
When I entered the Every Woman Blog Contest, I was doing it pretty much on a whim – simply because I wanted a new hobby and saw this as a great way for it to take off while also being able to share with the community. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to be a part of this group of fabulous women! Our group is diverse in many ways – experiences, stage in life, career paths, etc. and I am so excited to learn about these women while also being one of them!
Being the youngest of the Every Woman Bloggers (I’m 20, but will turn 21 in 21 days – so start shopping for presents!) you might be wondering what you are going to see me blog about. I like to think that I am a blossoming flower in this current stage of my life. I have a more womanly figure than the one I had in high school (Thank the Lord), I am preparing for my future profession, learning about my beliefs, setting goals, meeting people that have changed my life, and having a great time while doing it. It definitely has not been an easy journey, but an exciting one nonetheless.
You will see me blogging about a variety of topics, but mainly the people in my life, Alzheimer’s disease, women and young girls as leaders, the community, and education. These are all things that I discovered or furthered my passion for during college or while being Miss Black South Carolina USA 2011. Being Miss Black South Carolina USA helped me learn so much about myself while having an impact on others. There is a now a new titleholder, which is bittersweet, but I’m sure my mom and boyfriend would agree that they’re happy to not be traveling with me all over the place anymore!
I have two blogs — http://www.missblackscusa2011.blogspot.com and http://www.befabulousgirl.blogspot.com — that I that I have used. I am currently on a hiatus from them while trying to figure out how I would like to combine them in order to have one fabulous blog with all of my thoughts and happenings in one space. For all you tweeters out there, you can follow me on twitter @MissBlackSC2011 and be on the lookout for the new blog!
