We have had 2 AMAZING events recently and we are so thankful for the wonderful venues in Winston Salem for hosting us. We had our first Sunday event which was a huge success. The Canteen Market & Bistro provided our ladies with FREE wine tasting, great snacks and their seafood super was delicious. We have had some great local businesses that have been supporting us especially Winston Salem Cycle Bar and Sunshine energy drinks that helped fill our swag bags full of products. Chad's Chai came out to give our ladies samples and we even had free chair massages. Last week we had another great turnout at Joymongers Brewing and even had some live music. I am beyond excited for the future of HITC - WS. Our city has so many AMAZING things happening and I hope to help you explore new venues, provide you with networking opportunities and fun times.

I have always been someone who puts other peoples needs before my own, but a few years ago I found myself stuck in a relationship where I felt I could never do something for myself. It took me hitting rock bottom to realize that I wanted to do something for myself, that would enable me to support myself financially, Ever since I was in high school I had dreamed of being. However being the free bird that I am, I dropped out of college to move to the beach, got a little distracted along the way, including boys and a move from England to the USA. Finally in 2017 I was fortunate enough to have my amazing fiance by side who encouraged and supported my decision to go back to college. I completed my associates degree in just 1 year and am now attending Western Caroline University to obtain my bachelors degree. Now I am not saying that this has been an easy journey, there has been times when I have been crying because I have too much to do and too little time, or I have been simply so overwhelmed I didn't know where to start. Last summer I managed to do 7 classes at once online with the community college, whilst also travelling for 5 weeks in Europe. So this summer I confidently figured I would be able to handle 5 classes at WCU. Everyone kept saying to me that I was taking on too much work especially with a new baby. They were soooo right, this has been one hell of a summer! It has been so hard having 5 tough classes, having my oldest baby home for the summer break and raising a new baby. I only had to take 3 out of the 5 classes, but I am crazy and am trying to get a minor in Psychology and my 24 hours in social studies on top of my bachelors. Now I have done very well with my classes all A's and B's, but it has come with a huge sacrifice as I have had hardly anytime to spend with my family. Now I have to remember though, that I am doing this so that I can have more time with my family and have time to make more memories in the future. I only have 1 year left so it will be so worth it in the long run. It has taken me so much determination and hours of hard work but I am driven by my ambition. Going back to college for me was not just the desire to have my bachelors but I really wanted to have a self-validating experience. Getting that postcard in the mail when I first made the Dean's list was so empowering and really showed me that I can do anything when I dream big. It would have been easy for me to take a semester off this summer and focus on all the reasons I couldn't do it. But instead I am proud of myself, we still have over 2 weeks until school starts and I am determined to make the most of that time with my babies and hubby to be. Also we have been renovating a an RV this summer, from the top down - but that is a whole other stressful story lol! The trend here is that all of my hard work leads to something beautiful. What do you want to do this year but have been scared to take that first step?
