Be Back Soon!

I feel like a Charlie Brown raincloud is following me around these days.

School is wrapping up, I'm swamped with work and I'm still on an internship hunt. I've let myself get discouraged and I'm trying my best to stay on track despite the uncertainty ahead.

This is why I am excited to fly to Miami today to attend the CGIU (Clinton Global Initiative University) conference with three of my fellow PR classmates Michelle, Kat and Emily!

In order to be accepted to the conference, each group/individual must pledge a commitment. Our commitment is to raise $2000 for the Canopy Group, a not-for-profit organization that helps to support literacy in Tanzania, Africa. At the conference, I will hear from activists and world leaders, attend seminars and participate in a charity service project on the last day. 

It's time to get outside my own head. I am ready to learn about global challenges and meet fellow peers who believe they can change the world. It's also my *gasp* 23rd birthday on Sunday!!  Lastly, if I get a little sun along the way, I won't complain. :) 

I hope to be tweeting some updates (I definitely will have my phone on me) and post a full blog post when I return! If you're not doing so already, follow me on twitter at: @notamodelblog

See you in the sunshine state! Have a great weekend. xo 
Sidenote: I've also purchased a real official blog domain name, so I'll be a [.com] instead of [blogspot.com] It should be working in a few days, so apologies if some of the links don't work on my sidebar.
