Risk Taker? (yes, that's technically two words)
Growth minded? (also two words)
These are some of the words others have shared on Twitter's #oneword list. I went back and forth, trying to decide what my word would be. I wanted something that represented my desire to share my voice, generate positive changes in my community, achieve my moonshot goals, and make an impact. Finally, I chose fearless. By no means does this mean I don't expect to face anything scary or difficult, instead, I want to leave every situation knowing I stayed true to my beliefs, focused on the positive, and gave my all. I do not want to hold myself back, and have many opportunities I want to explore. I look forward to being fearless in 2015 as I continue to learn and grow as an educator, writer, and individual.
