Happy Thanksgiving friends! While 2019 has been one crazy year, there is so much that I am thankful that happened this year.
My Comeback Into Theatre
This year I made my return into theatre by being in Carrollwood Players productions of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and My Big Fat Rowdy Irish Funeral. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity be back on stage and make life long friends while doing it. While I am currently not in a show, there are a few auditions I am looking into because I still have the bug and have an itch to perform. There’s still a part of me that I want to be on Broadway, but, for now I will love to continue to be a part of Tampa’s theatre community.
My DCP Experience
While I am no longer a Disney College Program participant, I am so thankful that I was able to finally be involved in the Walt Disney Company. I am truly blessed for the friends I made throughout my journey. In particular, I am so thankful for Zac, Ricky and Chance. Thank you so much for being my rocks throughout my program! I am so glad I meet each of you! I am thankful for the experiences I gained from Disney. It made me a better employee and will help me grow within Marriott.
My Return to Marriott International
While coming back home was very abrupt, I am so eternally blessed to have returned to Marriott. I am in love with the property I am at. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms. Immediately I felt a sense of support and the entire team is there for one another. Thank you to Valeri and Infonta for giving me this amazing opportunity and answering any questions I have. Thank you to Jeremy and Ashley for being great trainers and resources. I am grateful for such a phenomenal leadership and I so excited to be on this wonderful team. 2020 is going to be my year that I grow in this company and I am ready to put in the work!
My Best Friend
Cheyenne, thank you so much for being the best friend that I could have ever ask for. You are always there for me when I need a pick me up, a photoshoot, or a girls night out. I am so appreciative that you’re there to help me take my photos, star in my videos, and help edit them. You have helped my confidence grow significantly. Seeing you slay as a girl boss has given me the inspiration to get my life together and chase after my goals and dreams! You and your family have always accepted me and made feel I was apart of your family and I am welcomed into your home. You are the sister I never had. I am so thankful we met in the cafeteria freshman year. Stay tuned for the Cheyenne and Zach 10 year anniversary special next year!
For the last 23 years, these two have been my everything. They have been there for me through everything. They work with me when I am depressed or have my anxiety attacks. They have always supported me in everything I have wanted to pursue. They will do anything for me. They are patient and will never leave me. We are constantly learning and growing, but I truly loving and accepting parents. I honestly I have the greatest parents ever and I am truly thankful for them.
2019 was filled with so many lessons that I am very thankful for! These lessons are going to help slay 2020!
I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! Make sure to tell those who you are thankful for how much they mean to you!
