30 by 30 List


After I received the Forbes 30 under 30 honor, it was like this different pressure swept over me. It felt as if I had this new ceiling and now things were expected of me. I reached a new standard, that I didn’t even know if I was ready for. After some time passed, I realized I was. Everything was inside of me just like it was Patrick Mahomes, Ivy Alwino and Bobby Wagner (yeah, the surrounding class was intimidating).

I deserved to have my name there. Hard work is hard work, no matter what you’re doing. Now, I’m about to enter the last year of my 20s and I started feeling another new pressure, one that’s asking me how I’m going to put a bow on it. While I don’t know exactly how this year will look, I am after all having my first “covid birthday” and I wouldn’t have expected that last year but here we are.

I have decided I’m going to be doing a 30 by 30 list. 30 things I want to accomplish by 30. Some of these are small, some of these are personal and some of these will look different than I intend but nonetheless I am putting them out into the universe and here they are. The point of my sharing them is to take you on this journey with me, to let you know what we can accomplish when we set our mind to it and to be the little reminder, the meaning of life is to give life a meaning.
