Harborside Young Adults // Contributing Writer, Leader
Adulting is hard. Starting out as a young professional is an exciting and challenging journey, but the "fake it 'til you make it" mantra is exhausting. Bloggers, influencers and how-tos are helpful, but can be hurtful, as well; they lead to comparison traps and don't fill our need for genuine connections. Having experienced my own setbacks, I found a community of young adults to do life with in real time, not digitally. The more I plugged in, leading small groups and volunteering with kids, the more I grew personally and relationally. This is a blurb I wrote to welcome newcomers.
