I happened to be looking at my MiW Gateway portfolio the other night (ya know, to brush up…get some ideas for my Capstone portfolio) when I stumbled upon my old blog posts. Particularly, I clicked on a link to my first ever Gateway blog post, where we were all required to introduce ourselves. Man, is it great reading back a post I wrote about two years. I know two years doesn’t seem like a lot, but it sure feels that way. So much has changed within the last couple of months: my family, my friends, my experiences, my perspectives. But what’s crazy is that no matter the changes, my voice has remained the same. In my writing, that is.
So, as I read back on my first Gateway blog post, I giggle to myself and recall typing it up that first time. I think to myself, “If I had to write a personal introduction today, how would I approach it?” And truthfully, I would write it no differently. No matter how much I have grown as a person through out my college career, I still keep my little quirks, knacks, and passions. So, I wanted to ask you, my fellow Capstone buddies, would you write yourself a new introduction if you had the chance? Or would you keep it just the way it is?
So, here it is…my first ever Gateway Post:
HI! I’m Niki. Yes, with one K – so fancy, I know. I sware I’m 20 years old! Everyone seems to peg me at 12. I may be 4’11 and 3 quarters (YOU CANNOT TELL ANYONE THOUGH…the rest of the world believes I’ve made it to 5 feet!), but haven’t you heard of the saying, “big things come in small packages?”
I’d like to think of myself in that light because yes, okay, I may be tiny…BUT I have:
-A huge personality
-A huge voice (singing, I mean…)
-A huge appetite (you don’t want to know what I could eat in one sitting…)
-A huge selection of 5-6 inch heels
-A huge obsession with Disney Channel (come on, who doesn’t dream of holding that beautiful, glowing wand…still, to this day…)
-A huge love for anything witty
-And a huuuuuuge crush on Jimmy Kimmel…oh, and Chelsea Handler.
…yeah, who’s small now, huh?
