“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the path less traveled by… that has made all the difference.” -Robert Frost
If you get a chance? take it. If it changes your life? let it. Live the life you want to live. Be the person you’ll be proud of being. Make decisions. Make mistakes.
I have always been one to push forward in life, never looking back with a second glance. Everything I have done from the time I could talk — read — write, was for my future. I have dared to be different, chosen to believe that everything happens for a reason and stepped away from the “crowd.”
Prior to having dreams which put me behind the engineering of a shuttle, I had the dream to predict the future and forecast. From the time I woke up to the time I would fall asleep as a child, the weather forecast would remain on my TV screen. Even in college I do not regret to confess the majority of the applications on my iPhone are regarding weather forecasts — models — severe weather outlook, and others.
With this background information, you can only began to understand my underlying excitement with the following news: This past week I am very proud to say I was offered the opportunity to job shadow the meteorologist team of the WRAL channel five news cast in Raleigh, North Carolina! Having an applied meteorology minor and a “slight” weather obsession, (aside from coming to Embry-Riddle) made this easily one of the greatest opportunities I have yet to receive.
