My YETI Ready Journey
My future story demands ownership over my actions and goals. My journey towards my post-secondary choice of becoming a business major and future entrepreneur has not been a straightforward path. Up until this past summer I was really uncertain of the future story I wanted to pursue. It wasn't until I started my creative directing class I realized my enjoyment in forging my own path. While I know now I want to be an entrepreneur, I also realize I need some assistance in gaining awareness of the basics of business. Therefore I am going to be pursuing business in college.
While eventually, my plan is to end in at the University of Louisville studying business, next year I plan to attend ECTC. I actually applied last week! In addition to applying to ECTC, I sat down with my parents two weeks ago to begin the work on the FAFSA process. My next step is getting scholarships. Over the next month, I really need to focus on local scholarships where my chances of getting a scholarship awarded are higher. I also plan to shadow a couple of entrepreneurs during Operation Exploration.
As I think about my senior year, I am particularly proud of my involvement. I consistently step up in my Care & Connect class and volunteer to lead in my HOUSE. However, I would like to get involved in FBLA. I feel this will help with my future story plans. My next step will be to contact Mr.Spears to learn more about joining.
Also, according to the YETI journey card, I am YETI! YES! I am excited to put my sticker on my jet and move my name on the ship in the next month. I have seen those before me move their name and remember the pride in their smiles.
While I feel I am making decent progress, I do feel there are a couple of barriers to my future plans. One being my procrastination. I am my own worst enemy with deadlines. I need to build a system or calendar to stay more on top of things coming due. I know this will be valuable next year.
