Happy New Year Everyone!!
First off, I want to say thank you to everyone who made my 2021 amazing! I was able to accomplish so much because of the love and support I received from people all around the world. Let’s have a quick recap: I became a Pharmacy Technician, I obtained a Creative Director Certificate from IFA Paris, and I acquired a TEFL Certificate with specialties in Advanced Grammar and Online Teaching, all during the ongoing pandemic. I published my website, I was featured in various publications, and I was able to expand my professional network all around the world. My favorite “accomplishment” of 2021 is finally shifting my focus to move to Thailand and work towards competing for Miss Universe Thailand. I have been able to build an amazing team and foster friendships with astonishing people in Thailand. I bought my plane ticket, and I am ready to make the big leap into 2022. 2021 has been an overwhelming year for me, but I have been able to manage thanks to the positive encouragement from family and friends.
Now On to 2022!! What lies ahead? I’M MOVING TO THAILAND. The land of my ancestors, the homeland of my mother. I am still working as a pharmacy technician in order to save up as much money as I can before I move in March. However, I am also shifting my efforts to focus on various activities that will help me with the transition.
I am reading more books about the culture, language, and history of Thailand and the people. I am listening to podcasts to help me become more fluent in the language. I am watching videos to make me more familiar with speaking and reading thai. I am watching and reading Thai news stations to make sure I am up to date with the political and economical environment of Thailand. My personal education is my main focus in the first couple months of the New Year. However, I do have a few side assignments I am doing.
My Physical Training:
I recently cancelled my gym membership (because I rarely use it), and I am working with an aspiring personal trainer to help me towards my physical physique goals. Unfortunately, simply having a gym membership was not enough to keep me motivated to maintain an active lifestyle. I decided a different, more personalized approach was required. Therefore, for the next two months I will be working with a professional physique show competitor to help me reach my goals before I leave.
Once I’m in Thailand:
First, I still need to find a place to live. My team is currently helping me find a place to live. I will be practicing and perfecting my walking and stage presence with my team. I will be volunteering at schools to help teach children English as well as assisting in creating and fostering a positive environment for growing minds. I will also be trying to find modeling/entertainment work to help me create a sustainable life in Thailand. Lastly, my main goal 2022 will be to compete for Miss Universe Thailand and bring the Third crown to Thailand in Miss Universe! I'm going to have to work hard both physically and mentally, but I am prepared to give it my all !!
I love and appreciate you all, and I can't wait to see what amazing things 2022 brings!!
