Finding Your Passion

As a person who is only 20 years old. I can definitely admit to times where I did not know where passion was. When you’re young you are into a lot of things. I know I’ve personally been interested in many things. Before I started college I was considering being a physical therapist, lawyer, doctor, and other  careers. But around my junior/senior year I took a broadcasting class at my school and it changed my life. I found my passion in video production, being on-screen talent, and all things entertainment. I didn’t even know how much work went into doing video production or writing a script before college. I truly am a student to this game. I want to know as much as I can about everything in movie and tv production from beginning to end. Finding your passion is about finding something that you enjoy doing and enjoy learning. Your passion is something that you do and it doesn’t feel like work. Your passion is something that you don’t necessarily have to be monetarily rich from doing it because it makes you feel rich in spirit. Having a passion is a beautiful thing and do not let anyone steer you away from it. People will always have something negative to say no matter what you are doing. People and their opinions do not matter at all. Many people try and kill others dreams because they didn’t fulfill their own personal goals and dreams. I truly believe in the saying that hurt people hurt people. But focus on your self and stay confident in the choices you make for your life and I promise you won’t regret it.

Update October 2017

Hello All! It has been a very long time since I have updated this website. A lot has changed since I last posted. I transferred colleges. I am now back home in Birmingham,AL. I attend the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am in my 3rd year and I am still pursuing a degree in Broadcast Journalism. I also declared a minor recently in Sports & Entertainment Marketing. I intend to keep this website updated. I guess we could call this a blog. I do not have a specific topic to focus on yet. But it will be college related, but also just about general life as a young African American woman chasing her dreams. This will also be my first step toward having a youtube channel. I believe sometimes it is easier to write out your thoughts then talking about them. Hopefully this new journey is as exciting as I want it to be. Expect a lot of updates and changes to this website as well. This is the beginning of the Abani Ayanna brand.
